Cost of picture which honours former IT Tralee chair revealed

IT Tralee has revealed how much it paid for a picture honouring its former chairman, Flan Garvey. ITT Mr Garvey retired two years ago and a photographic portrait of him was later unveiled in his honour at the institute. IT Tralee says the total cost of the photographic print on canvas was 703 euro 70 cent. The institute says three quotations are required for purchases of €2,000 or higher. It says in this instance, as the picture cost less than €2,000,  only one quotation was required. Flan Garvey had been found to have plagiarised his Masters thesis but that  this was unintentional and his degree wasn’t attained in an unjustified manner.
