26 college staff accuse councillor of plagiarising thesis - National News - Independent.ie
I mean, borrowing a few lines you might get away with, but you really have to be delusional if you think you can copy fourteen pages verbatim and think no one will notice.A chairman of the Institute of Technology Tralee has been accused by 26 staff of plagiarising sections of a thesis.
Former Fianna Fail councillor Flan Garvey received a master of arts degree for the thesis in 2008.
In one example, the staff claim 14 pages of the dissertation are identical to a book which was published in 1965 about Mr Garvey's native parish Inagh.
