Trinity College expected its cash pile to rise to nearly €240 million at the end of September following a better-than-expected financial performance, new documents show.

A confidential presentation circulated to members of the university’s board, seen by the Business Post, shows Ireland’s oldest university reported a surplus of €36.2 million in the first nine months of its financial year to June 30 – up by nearly a third on the same period the year before.
