O'Loan to chair NUI Maynooth authority

FORMER Northern Ireland Police Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan is to chair the governing authority at NUI Maynooth.

She will play a key role in setting the strategic direction of Ireland's fastest growing university. The post carries an honorarium payment of €12,000 a year.

Ms O'Loan said yesterday it was a great honour to be invited to take on the role by an Irish university for which she had so much respect.

Ms O'Loan is a trained solicitor, lecturer and former special envoy for conflict.

A native of Hertfordshire, England, she served as the North's first Police Ombudsman, holding the post for seven years to 2007.
