Talks to resume on South East University

Talks look set to re-open on the South East University proposal.

The respective governing bodies of IT Carlow and Waterford IT have met in recent days and both have agreed to re-enter the discussions.

It follows the publication of a report back in July which recommended the 2 institutes would re-engage in the process.

South Kilkenny based Dáil Deputy John Paul Phelan says this is positive but admits there’s still a long way to go.
