His legacy at UCC was mixed.
He expanded the university, oversaw a lot of new building and increased industry links to the extent that UCC’s industry funded research is almost as much as UCD and TCD combined. However, he left it with a massive pile of debt. Although he liked to portray his opponents as old-fashioned academics, the major concern was over whether UCC could service the debt.
Alot of that debt had to do with Govermental commitments being reneged upon.
