The Argus - - NEWS -

STO­RIES were swapped and friend­ships re­newed at the launch of ‘Jewel of the North East - doc­u­ment­ing the story of Dundalk In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy’ by for­mer lec­tur­ers Pat Clin­ton and Deirdre McAr­dle- Clin­ton.

The book, which was a labour of love for the cou­ple, doc­u­ments the his­tory of Dundalk In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy from its hum­ble ori­gins as one of five Re­gional Tech­ni­cal Col­leges opened around the coun­try in the early 1970s to its present sta­tus as a lead­ing cen­tre of ed­u­ca­tion with stu­dents from 25 coun­tries around the world.

For any­one as­so­ci­ated with the col­lege over the years, as staff or stu­dents, the book will evoke a lot of mem­o­ries.
