On May 5th Minister Harris signed the order granting Technological University status to Athlone Institute of Technology and the Limerick Institute of Technology which, in turn, bestows the title of Technological University to the satellite campuses in Thurles and Clonmel. ‘Minister Harris has ensured that both the Thurles and Clonmel can now offer even greater educational value and opportunity to students from Tipperary and beyond. They will also provide a stream of highly qualified graduates who will be of enormous benefit to the economic development of the area going forward’ says Deputy Lowry.

‘This will be transformational for Tipperary. Students of all ages from Tipperary and the surrounding counties will now able to access a University education without having to leave home. This will open up opportunities for more students to access 3rd Level education. It will have major benefits for rural and provincial Ireland, particularly for our county and the adjoining counties’ says Deputy Lowry.
