The Road Less Travelled is a new series from the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and Near FM. In this episode we welcome Mark McMahon, whose educational journey took him from his local community school in Blanchardstown to the Pathways to Law Programme organised by Trinity’s Access Programme (TAP), and on to a degree in Law and Business at Trinity College Dublin, and becoming a Barrister. Mark will be in conversation with Sarah Grimson, the Foundation Course Co-Ordinator with the Trinity Access Programme.
