According to a statement on the organisation’s website, Dr Love said he had regrettably made the decision after a “brief tenure”.

He is expected to step down in October.

He also praised the HEA for its valuable contribution to higher education in Ireland and wished the organisation every success in the future.

HEA chairman Michael Horgan thanked Dr Love for his time at the organisation, saying he “has significantly contributed to the development of the higher education system in Ireland”.
