Locals in Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, and Waterford will have a lot to look forward to. They can expect road developments and new campuses in both Wexford and Waterford.

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar also compared the huge impact that the establishment of the University of Limerick had on the mid-west region. He believes that the new university in the southeast will have a similar and even greater positive impact.

As expected, with the establishment of a new university in southeast Ireland comes huge opportunities. Minister Harris will be inviting applications for roles as chairperson and two external members of the first-ever governing body very soon.

There has been talk of the huge economic impact on the region once this new university is established. There will also be opportunities for local enterprises, something that we could have only imagined many years ago in the southeast.

The area once saw many young people leaving to attend university in other regions or even abroad.

But now, we expect students will opt to stay and reap the rewards of the new higher education opportunities. This is great news for the future of Ireland.

We are sure this will really put Ireland on the global student map and boost the economy greatly.

Many have also described the exciting announcement of a new university in southeast Ireland as a real ‘game changer’, especially for the Waterford and Carlow regions. We are sure the locals are looking forward to this positive transformation.
