On 6 July 1980, for the first time in its 230 year history, the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin awards degrees to students.
This RTÉ News report comes from the college’s exhibition week, an annual event displaying the work of final year students. Twenty students received degrees after completing a four year course in conjunction with N.I.H.E. Limerick. Amongst the displays at the exhibition are a costume designed for the play "Waiting for Godot", a compact fitted kitchen unit, and a baby transport system. Lecturer at the college, David Sherlock, expresses his delight with the course and the success of the students.
