Nothing really. Possibly nothing at all, now. But 20-odd years ago,
I can say that the Science Department was pretty horrible -
especially the Biochem lot, and I've been known to mention this fact.
If you've been there even somewhat recently, and admired the verdant
grounds - it wasn't at all like that back when I went, either. New
and raw and very ugly. (And yes, a certain part of all this
negativity was due my really wanting to be in Trinity, studying Eng.
Lit, but I couldn't, because my father had taught in Trinity, while
my step-father taught at UCD and there were Issues (big-time), and
yes, I know how feeble all this sounds, but this still doesn't change
my conviction (shared by pretty much everyone who got a Biochem.
degree at the time) that it stank!)
