Minister O’Sullivan said, “LIT has demonstrated great vision in its plans for Coonagh, which the Department of Education is supporting by way of significant investment in the purchase of this site. The Coonagh campus will foster innovation and consequent job creation in Limerick and the region, while the provision of new amenities at the City North Sports Park addresses a shortage of facilities on this side of the city.
