“The Education and Training Facility marks a significant development for learners and communities in the Cavan Monaghan region, but also an important milestone in the evolution of FET facilities.

“Under my Department’s FET College of the future Major Projects Fund, a huge project was approved for the development of a 1,000-pupil facility for Cavan Institute which is proceeding to the next stage of the assessment process now.

“While that project is progressing, and to provide more suitable interim accommodation, I approved the acquisition and fit out of this significant modular unit to provide an enhanced learning environment.”

Chief Executive of CMETB Dr Fiona McGrath said:

“Cavan and Monaghan ETB are delighted to celebrate the official opening of this new Education and Training facility for Cavan Institute.

“These new facilities will enrich the educational experience for the learners and staff at Cavan Institute.”
