Ballina native Dr Peter Heffernan has been appointed the new Chair of the Council of the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies - an internationally-renowned institute for research and scholarship.

Prior to his appointment, Dr Heffernan served as CEO of the Marine Institute for 27 years - retriring from the position last year.

Peter Hefferman says he's delighted to have been appointed by the President of Ireland as Chair of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, and says it's a privilege to work with an institute of such high calibre.

The Institute - which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year - conducts and publishes advanced research across three areas - Celtic Studies, Theoretical Physics and Cosmic Physics.
