I have more than a passing interest in the graduation ceremonies at Queens this year, so I’ve been checking out to see who the Honorary Graduands are, as I usually have no idea who the person is or what they’re on stage for.
This year, Queens has kindly chosen people I recognise, and I see Miss Fitz will be sharing the podium on Monday night with Robert Fisk. Other recipients will include Mickey Harte, Eamonn Holmes, Angela Feeney, Jonathan Porritt and Sir Digby Jones. I would have preferred Mickey Harte, but maybe next time!
Queen’s graduations are the highlight of the academic year and some 4,000 students and their friends and families will celebrate their academic achievements in 12 ceremonies, beginning on the morning of Monday, 3 July and finishing on the afternoon of Friday, 7 July
