Teagasc extension for college grants

Some of the country's agricultural colleges have been granted a reprieve following a review of Teagasc financing.

Under a revision of its support for colleges, the Teagasc subvention paid to the agricultural colleges had been extended to the end of the 2010/11 academic year.

However, the future remains uncertain for agricultural colleges in Pallaskenry and Mountbellew, as the colleges at Clonakilty, Gurteen and Athenry are likely to remain the preferred Teagasc education centres.
