A clutch of UCD students led the Easter Rising in 1916: many more fought in the War of Independence. The first Dl met at the Earlsfort Terrace campus between 1919 and 1922. James Joyce, Flann O'Brien and half the Republic's presidents and Taoiseachs have called it their alma mater; around 1,300 faculty and 20,000 students make it their academic home today.
