iCRAG co-PI, Professor Andy Wheeler, met with the President of Ireland and showed him UCC’s historic Daniel O’Leary Emerald as part of the opening of an exhibition on the Irish in South America. The emerald tells a story of a revered Irishman who helped liberate Venezuela, Bolivia, Columbia and Peru with Simon Bolívar and returned a token of the mineral wealth of South America to Ireland at the foundation of UCC. One of iCRAG’s key mission is the support and development mineral exploration in Ireland and abroad.
