Pauraic Renaghan elected new Dundalk IT Students’ Union president
Local man Pauraic Renaghan has been elected the new President of Dundalk IT Students’ Union.
The Ravensdale man will succeed Aaron Lawless in the position for the 2017/18 academic year after coming top of the ballot at the college this week following a head to head with Dave Newman.
The third year Business Studies student has vowed to improve mental health facilities in the college, to clamp down on people who are not DkIT students from taking up parking spaces on campus and to meet local representatives to discuss the student accommodation crisis in the area.
Amongst other items on his manifesto is to push for lower prices in the canteen and to set up the first ever barber shop in the college.
Pauraic will be assisted by Meathman Aaron Geagan, who has been elected the new Vice President. He will succeed Paddy Duffy in the role.
Reacting to his election on Facebook, Pauraic said he was “absolutely over the moon to be elected.”
