Concerns have been expressed about how NUI Galway (NUIG) would respond to press queries over the secondment of a former secretary general to the university, amid controversy over the proposed move by Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan to Trinity College Dublin (TCD).

Documents released by NUIG under Freedom of Information (FOI) also show confusion over which organisation should pay the salary of Fergal Lynch – the former secretary general of the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, who is on secondment to the university following government sign-off.
