Deputy Murnane O Connor says her focus remains on the role that our local educational facilities will have; “I know my biggest issue and I’ll highlight it again is Carlow Kilkenny and the integration of St Patrick’s College into the Technological University with Carlow IT and that’s what I’m very focused on and I know the Minister is too so I always had my priorities for Carlow Kilkenny for the investment and I think what it will bring to Carlow Kilkenny will absolutely be phenomenal”.
