“An integral part of Sligo” has received funding!!
This capital investment will facilitate the consolidation on campus of the recently established Yeats Academy of Arts, Design and Architecture and form a North Campus Creative Hub in IT Sligo.
This will help to grow IT Sligoensure it reaches University Status.
Fine Gael T.D. for Sligo – Leitrim and Assistant Government Whip, Tony McLoughlin, has said that “the announcement of €14 Million today for IT Sligo under the ‘Ireland Project 2040’ Plan is yet further evidence of the Government’s renewed focus on the North West and Co. Sligo as its growth center and is a major boost to the region.
This really is wonderful news, and I am delighted to see even more funding flowing into Sligo under the Governments Ireland 2040 plan, a plan which was actually launched in IT Sligo just last year.
Today’s positive announcement for Sligo comes on the back of over €160 Million investment in upgrading our key roads this year, the 1450 new jobs announced here since January 2018 and the continued focus on helping Sligo to grow to reach its potential.
This capital investment announced today for IT Sligo will facilitate the consolidation on campus of the recently established Yeats Academy of Arts, Design and Architecture and form a North Campus Creative Hub in IT Sligo.
This creative hub will allow art, design and architecture students to optimise the commonalities of the various disciplines in a fit for purpose, collaborative environment. This significant development is an integral part of the master plan of IT Sligo to grow to 10,000 students.
Funding will be provided through the Higher Education Authority (HEA).
Today is a great day for IT Sligo, its management and the students here and it is yet another great day for Sligo in general as we continue to be the key recipient of funding under the Fine Gael Governments’ ‘Ireland 2040’ plan.
