Jump to: navigation, search

The Auditor of the Literary and Historical Society at University College Dublin, Ireland is a position elected by the members of the society. In this setting, the term auditor has no connection with accounting but means "a position corresponding to that of President of the Union at Oxford or Cambridge" (Oxford English Dictionary). Some former L&H auditors have gone on to careers of high distinction in law, politics, medicine, academia, journalism, and other endeavours.[1][2]

A quick glance at the list of auditors of the L&H, or indeed of many other societies that are on display in the Arts/Commerce Building, will indicate that very many of these auditors were able to combine their academic study and participation in College societies. Some of those listed are readily identifiable as people who later made their names in many aspects of public and business life of this country. "
