Description

A European Identity: Some reflections on the career of Maurice Hayes on the opening of his archive at NUI Galway by Lord Patten of Barnes

NUI Galway is delighted that Lord Patten of Barnes, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, will give the Maurice Hayes Memorial Lecture following his opening of the archive of Dr Maurice Hayes earlier in the day. Formerly Secretary of State for the Environment, Governor of Hong Kong and European Commissioner for External Relations, Lord Patten was Chair in 1998-1999 of the Independent Commission on Policing for Northern Ireland, of which Maurice Hayes was a member.

Maurice Hayes (1927-2017) was an eminent public servant who played a vital role towards peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland. His many roles included: Chairman of the Community Relations Commission; Assistant Secretary to the Northern Ireland Power-Sharing Executive; Independent Senator in Se­anad Éireann; Chairman of the Ireland Funds; Ombudsman for Northern Ireland. He published widely, including a three-volume autobiography, and was also a vital figure in Down’s GAA successes in the 1960s.
