Sinead Cusack - Sinead Cusack Picks Up Honorary Degree

Irish actress Sinead Cusack beamed with pride as she received an honorary degree from a university in Dublin on Saturday (15Jun13).

Veteran actor Jeremy Irons was on hand to support his wife as she was presented with a Doctor of Literature degree from officials at University College Dublin.

Cusack studied at the institution as a young woman but quit to pursue her acting dreams, much to her mother Maureen's dismay.

Speaking at the ceremony, the star explained, "I never finished my degree. I left Ucd three months before my finals and it was a huge disappointment to my mother. So in a way getting this degree is very moving for me because of my mother. She would have been so proud. That is why today means so much to me. She died many, many years ago, but I'm sure she's here in spirit today."
