    Fury as Hanafin says ‘no’ to uni

    EDUCATION Minister Mary Hanafin has been criticised in the southeast for claims that Ireland does not need another university, following years of campaigning for one for the area.

    So when did this reshuffle take place? I was under the impression that Mary Coughlan was the Education Minister!

    I hoped that coughlan having any job other than pulling pints in a donegal pub was merely a bad dream.

    Maybe Ciaran is denying the same bizarre reality.

    Of course the real story is that it seems that none of the morning current affairs programmes, or 'what it says in the papers' on Morning Ireland seems to have noticed. Is this a comment on the government and the impact of Ministers on their Ministries?

    More typical lazy journalism. Why bother checking facts or doing any research?

    As for a university for the south east, this is needed now more than even. WIT is widely acknowledged as the best of the IT's and a university could easily encompase Carlow IT and a campus in Wexford.

    Reporter errs.

    Not spotted by sub editor.

    EDITOR, if any, fails to read content.

    No wonder the Examiner is in trouble.

    Pains me to say this and see a once respected paper go down the tubes.

    Got it in one, JohnD.

    A news reporter/sub-editor/ Editor should know who the Min for Ed is.

    No major research called for there. Just basic, very basic knowledge.

    Too much to ask, apparently.

    To be honest, I'm more bothered by the 'Fury as ...' bit.

    There's almost no decision you couldn't write either 'Fury as x' or 'X welcomed' headlines about, depending solely on your prejudices.
