Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith welcomes the approval by Minister Simon Harris of modular units for Cavan Institute to be located at the former Dún Uí Néill Barracks which is now part of Cavan Institute. These modular units will replace rented premises.
“As Cathaoirleach of the first Board of Management of Cavan Institute I was very glad to support the work of the then County Cavan VEC in growing the further education sector locally.
In 2005 Cavan Institute became the first dedicated Post-Leaving Certificate College in the country and the major building complex was provided at Cathedral Road. This sector has grown in numbers and in importance in ensuring that students can access suitable courses of learning and also enables progression to higher education for many students.
I complimented Anne Marie Lacey, Principal and her staff colleagues in the Institute and also John Kearney, CEO of the ETB and his colleagues in progressing the provision of additional accommodation for the Institute. I will be glad to continue to support the work of Cavan Institute and in the future we will have further expansion in accommodation”, stated Deputy Brendan Smith.
