It’s that time of year again! After all the years of hard work, exams, lectures, all-nighters (and partying) it’s time for the University of Limerick graduations. All the students of UL will be flocking to Limerick in their caps and gowns looking forward to receiving that important piece of paper in front of their friends, teachers and family. These joyous occasions represent an important transition for graduands who have finished their studies and are about to embark on the next phase of their lives. College is a time of hard work and perseverance but also a very enjoyable time where you can meet new people and travel. Hopefully they can all look back on this day and appreciate all the experience they have gained and friends made. Graduation time is a nerve-wracking time for those leaving college but it's also an exciting moment where you can reach for your dreams. It is the beginning of a new chapter of life. From all the staff here at the Absolute Hotel & Spa we wish yo
