Dkit pro­duces a win for re­gion ev­ery year

The Argus - - OPINION -

DUN­DALK as we know won the league and cup dou­ble this sea­son, but long, long be­fore their first league and cup dou­ble in 1979 the town won the jack­pot and ev­ery year the town and re­gion wins a ma­jor suc­cess as an ed­u­cated work­force leaves the hal­lowed halls of Dun­dalk In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy.

It is an an­nual win that that might not be cel­e­brated in the same ex­u­ber­ant man­ner of Dun­dalk’s vic­tory in the Aviva Sta­dium, but last Thursday and Fri­day just over 1,300 stu­dents were con­ferred with aca­demic awards from DkIT.

Those stu­dents come from all over the coun­try, but mainly from the north­east with a sig­nif­i­cant number com­ing from the im­me­di­ate hin­ter­land of the Dublin Road cam­pus.

Those stu­dents have brighter prospects for their ed­u­ca­tion, they have been able to study lo­cally eas­ing the fi­nan­cial pres­sure on their fam­i­lies, they have con­trib­uted to the lo­cal econ­omy and the staff and In­sti­tute also con­trib­ute to the lo­cal econ­omy.

Some wins make head­lines, some don’t but are just or even more im­por­tant.
