A special Cabinet meeting will take place in Sligo this Friday.
The Cabinet meeting will get underway at 11am at IT Sligo, and will be followed by the launch by Taoiseach Leo Varadker of Project Ireland 2040 – the National Planning Framework and National Development Plan.
The President of IT Sligo Dr Brendan McCormack says the institute is honoured to host the historic Cabinet meeting – the first ever held on an IT campus.
He says the event is a vote of confidence in Sligo, the Northwest region, its young people and its future.
Dr McCormack says he believes the plans being announced on Friday will have a transformative impact on the economic well-being of the north-west region, and will provide a much-needed boost for the region.
