“I’m delighted that Minister Simon Harris has announced that the Chair of the new TUSE will be Paddy Prendergast from Oulart, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.

“Paddy is the former Provost of Trinity University.

“I’ve met Paddy several times and he will be an excellent chair of the new TUSE.

“The appointment of a Wexford person as chair also highlights that the university will be a university for the entire South East.

“This follows last week’s confirmation from Minister Michael McGrath at the Department of Expenditure and Public Reform that the way has been cleared for the CPO of a site for the Wexford Campus of TUSE.”
