Dr Oliver Murphy re-appointed President of Institute of Technology Tralee

Dr Oliver Murphy has been re-appointed President of the Institute of Technology Tralee.

He continues the role he initially took on in an acting capacity in 2011, before being assigned to it for a five-year period.

IT Tralee is currently preparing to merge with Cork Institute of Technology to form the Munster Technological University, something which is expected to happen by 2019.

Just Dr Murphy and President of Cork IT, Dr Brendan J. Murphy can apply for the post of President of the new Munster Technological University, as it’ll be a confined competition.
