€590,000 for facilities and equipment at IT Tralee – Griffin
Fine Gael TD for Kerry, Brendan Griffin has said that funding of €590,000 announced today for Institute of Technology Tralee will help meet the cost of much needed facilities and equipment.
“This funding is part of a €10 million Infrastructure Maintenance Fund Grant for Institutes of Technology.
“It is a great boost for IT Tralee and will allow it to meet costs already incurred on a range of small-scale building works, refurbishment of existing facilities and upgrading equipment. This is work that is of benefit to all students.
“Today’s funding is evidence of the Government’s commitment to supporting Institutes of Technology. Fine Gael has a long term plan to keep the recovery going. We are seeing economic progress, with over 135,000 more people at work. More people in work allows more investment in better services like these.”
