The Michael O’Donnell Memorial Fund was launched in 2007 to support engineering teaching and research activities at DIT and the development of engineering facilities at the new DIT campus at Grangegorman. The fund was established following a substantial legacy from the estate of the late Michael O’Donnell, former principal of Bolton Street College of Technology and the first acting President of DIT.
