Prominent Limerick solicitor Harry Fehily has been elected as chairman of the University of Limerick Foundation.

Mr Fehily, managing partner of Holmes O’Malley Sexton Solicitors, previously served as a board member for a number of years and succeeds Dr Loretta Brennan Glucksman in the role.

Commenting, Mr Fehily said: “I am delighted and honoured to take on this role. I am immensely proud of my association with the Foundation for the past eight years and I am privileged by the trust that has been placed in me by Dr Loretta Brennan Glucksman and the Board members in appointing me.

“I look forward to working alongside CEO Harvey Duthie in continuing the excellent work being done by the Foundation, as evident in the fact that it has already invested more than €200 million in projects across the campus.

“Today, we have an opportunity to build on that tremendous legacy for the benefit of the university, its students, Limerick city and the Mid-West and to ensure the continuance of the university’s status as an internationally recognised centre of educational excellence.”

Dr Brennan Glucksman congratulated Mr Fehily on his new role and thanked him for his tireless commitment to the Foundation, university and wider region. The Irish-American philanthropist confirmed that she will remain as a director of the Foundation.

Harvey Duthie, UL Foundation’s CEO, said: “We are already working on a number of exciting projects which we hope to bring to fruition over the coming months.”
