“The publication of DCU’s first authoritative and rigorous history represents an important milestone in the university’s 40th anniversary year. The motivation for commissioning the book was not only to mark these significant milestones but also to ensure that the historical record of such a rapidly changing and impactful institution could be captured as accurately as possible, when many of those directly involved in its development could contribute their personal recollections.” Professor Brian MacCraith (President of DCU) 



“Eoin Kinsella has delivered a comprehensive and dynamic history, which traces the development of the culture of excellence, innovation, and engagement that makes DCU distinctive. He pinpoints not merely the University’s unique place within the landscape of Irish Higher Education, but the extent to which DCU has shaped the tertiary system itself". Professor Daire Keogh (President-designate of DCU)
