Rita McCarthy 

"I studied for the MA in Local History at the University of Limerick and can safely say that this was a life changing experience for me. I have always loved history and I wanted to explore what happened in my local area after the War of Independence.  The MA course gave me the skills I needed to carry out the research and most importantly to be able to put that research into a readable thesis.  It was a challenging but extremely rewarding experience and I was supported fully on my journey by the lecturers in the Department of History who made the classes interesting and informative.  I would highly recommend the UL MA programme to anyone interested in the history of their place and people."
