Abolishing NUI

National University of Ireland

When I heard the news that Batt O’Keeffe was suggesting that that National University of Ireland be abolished, I initially thought it was a good idea. Then I stopped and thought about it and realised he must be reading from the same book that Enda was reading from!

Abolishing NUI is bad idea. Yes it will save money, but not a whole lot. The NUI serves some useful functions, and it would serve more if third level institutions were properly funded!

Todays Irish Times Editorial sets out some good reasons to why it shouldn’t be abolished, no matter what an Bord Snip Nua says. I cant help but agree!

  1. I don’t see the point in the NUI. Take UCC for example: “oh yes of course we’re a National University of Ireland… but don’t you dare ever call us that!” Seems a waste of a name.
