An anonymous donor has given €3m to UCD for a new athletics track.
The college has been on a waiting list for funding since the old track on the Belfield campus was ripped up six years ago.
Work is due to get underway on the €1.6m design which will include a long jump and hammer cage.
The philanthropic donation will also mean there is money left over to maintain the track for the next twenty years.
