Well done Nieves, on your achievement. Our school is very proud of all Nieves’ hard work as well as that of her teacher, Robert Mathews, for his help and guidance. Robert supplied information through books from Trinity College library and a personal interview to UCD History Professor Fionnuala Walsh – his assistance was invaluable.
