Group hugs of relief and a victory lap of the library were the first activities carried out by Ireland's newest batch of doctors.

More than 250 final year medical students from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) received their final results yesterday.

In a tradition running for more than 60 years in the RCSI, the results were read to students from the top of the stairs at 123 St Stephen's Green.

The students then stormed through the college's library to celebrate the culmination of their studies. Their graduation ceremony takes place in June.
