A portrait of former Queen's University lecturer Leslie Greer is on show at the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin as part of an exhibition telling the story of Ireland from 1916 to 2015 through the faces of its people.

Leslie, a noted linguist, was a translator at Britain's wartime code-breaking establishment at Bletchley Park, and in recognition of her contribution to the war effort she was awarded the Bletchley Park commemorative badge in 2015
