Wasn't sure where to ask this, please redirect to another thread if appropriate.

When the Centre of Excellence in Donnybrook opened in 2019, it was said that four further facilities were planned for the Midlands, North-Midlands, South-East and the North-East. Does anyone have any news of developments on this front?
Covid likely to have stopped these for a while. Likely to be few years down the line before anything happens with them

I'd guess Carlow and Dundalk will be next but have been stopped dead in the tracks by Covid. Money was coming from Leinster and the associated centre of education. Both have been financially hit by impact of Covid. Would be surprised if both are not in operation by 2022.

Carlow would likely be in conjunction with the IT and their new sports campus. I certainly heard it being mentioned and suggestions they're were being held up by politics and issues around locating sites.
