Mardyke Arena UCC Re-opening Ceremony
8th March 2010
Mardyke Arena UCC Official Re-opening
President of University College Cork - Dr. Michael Murphy officially re-opened the Mardyke Arena UCC today at a reception held in the Mardyke.
Dr. Murphy strongly commended the General Manager - Mr. Patsy Ryan, for his determination and effective management strategy which delivered a refurbished and rejuvenated Arena in record time following flood devastation in November 2009.
Mr. Ryan emphasised the enormity of the role played by key Arena staff who worked in adverse conditions to facilitate the works programme. " They were working in freezing cold conditions without several support services but carried on nonetheless without complaint".
We were honoured to have several Mardyke Residents at the re-opening ceremony - a special thank-you to all for your unflagging support and well-wishes.
