    ‘Our wonderful life together began at UCC, as our lives across two US coasts remarkably came together in Cork City.’

    Tracy Scannell-Keating, from Oregon, and Stephen Keating, from New York, saw their worlds collide when they first met during their study abroad year at UCC, in 1976. Now, 44 years later, the happy couple are sharing highlights and memories from their #ucclovestory

    ‘I still remember the first time I saw her - I even got her a star map of that date and time so we would never forget.’

    A shared passion for volunteering and education first brought Ann-Michelle Mullally and Mary Collins together. After a year of will-they-won’t-they?, it was at the annual Psych Ball where they realised they were more than just ‘besties’, and romance had indeed blossomed. They have been together ever since, with Mary recently proposing to Ann-Michelle at the very bench where they first met on campus – bringing their #ucclovestory full-circle.

    "Our favourite memories are probably our society weekend trips away with our friends".

    UCC sweethearts, Christina Murhill and Brendan Hayes got engaged on campus last Easter. Brendan proposed in the Quad and they had a professional photographer on hand to capture the moment. The couple now live and work in Dublin - Brendan as a solicitor with A&L Goodbody and Christina as a Mental Health Social Worker. They are both on the committee of the new Dublin Alumni Chapter.
