Galway Bay fm newsroom – Varied research areas for this Summer’s student bursars have been showcased at the Oranmore based Marine Institute

This year, 20 students gave flash presentations to their supervisors, other bursars, and Marine Institute staff.

Eight students’ efforts were highlighted as exceptional –

Rosemary Lane for Crayfish Plague Monitoring

Saoirse Cusack for Finance
Michael Officer for Marine Research Infrastructure
Colleen Kyan for Social Media and Communications
