UCC Students’ Union Hit Back At University Decision To Close Old College Bar

12565412_10153278025363456_765588953947033176_nUCC Students’ Union, UCC Societies’ Executive and UCC Clubs’ Executive have hit back at a decision by University College Cork to close the Old College Bar.

In a letter issued to UCC President, Dr. Michael Murphy, Eolann Sheehan, UCC Students’ Union President, stated that he was ‘disappointed and appalled’ by the decision. Sheehan said that “the Old College Bar is an important aspect of our university’s social and cultural history as well as an indispensable service and facility used by Societies, Clubs and student organisations on campus” before expressing that the Students’ Union “are highly disappointed and shocked by the lack of consultation or awareness extended to the Students’ Union and therefore the student body in the making of this decision.”

The decision, which was made by University Management Team Operations (UMTO), a body which the Students’ Union have been continually excluded from attending, will take away a venue “for 150+ club & society events per college year as well as the vast majority of socials for the 1000+ Club & Society events held each year” according to Sheehan. Furthermore, Sheehan expressed his dissatisfaction with the closure of “the live music venue on campus” before drawing attention to the “Irish and international acts such as Rubberbandits, Walking On Cars, Republic Of Loose, Jeffrey Lewis, Fred, Ham Sandwich, The Frank And Walters and Mickey Joe Harte”  which “have entertained thousands of students throughout the years” there.

The letter, co-signed by Patricia McCarthy, President of UCC Societies Executive and Michael Hanrahan, President of UCC Clubs Executive, acknowledges that “with time, venues and services must adapt to meet demands” and recommends that the Students’ Union “would be happy to advise and assist in updating and changing the Old College Bar to meet the requirements of UCC students today” however it states that they “will not accept the Old College Bar being removed and will not stand by the loss of our student space and social history” before urging the University to reconsider their decision

UCC Students’ Union Express “Shock and Disappointment” At Building Named After Dr James Watson

4096844094b881870c6c30

 

UCC Students’ Union has expressed “shock and disappointment” at the decision by UCC management to name a new building on campus after Dr James Watson.

In a letter issued to UCC President, Dr. Michael Murphy, Aidan Coffey, UCC Students’ Union President, has stated that “a character who professed views regarding race, gender and sexuality so out of keeping with the standards and expectations of us in the University should not be recognised with one of the highest honours that this institution can confer”.

Whilst acknowledging that ‘exceptional scientific records and achievements should be celebrated and acknowledged in their own right and in their own sphere’, Coffey claimed that “we in UCC should set different standards for our own honours, and we have the freedom and indeed the responsibility to decide the point at which racial prejudice overshadows scientific prowess; to decide the point at which a clearly demonstrated scholarly and academic brilliance cannot excuse alienating and incompatible social view.”

Coffey urged that management reconsider their decision and stated that “each and every building on our fine campus should reflect and echo an ethos of respect to which each and every student, staff member and visitor should aspire to. The naming of this building falls far short of this.”
