One issue is the compatibility of the two institutions and the range of subjects that they might offer, as well as the challenges involved. If I remember my history right, Maynooth has very good scientific and academic powers and abilities. It would be an interesting mix, and we could have an entirely new type of course in DkIT as well that would be different from what it would traditionally have had. This synergy and the exciting future for the north east rests now in the hands of the new president, Maynooth and ourselves. I have every confidence that will happen across the board. I know that my colleague, Deputy Ó Murchú, is hopeful as well. That is the second time in two days that I have called him a colleague. We all work together in the north east on issues as profound and important as this.
