What is a Five Star University?

Posted by You See See on September 05, 2011 at 21:27:25:

This morning RTE reported that UCC was the 'only 5-star university' in Ireland!!?

Tonight, however, the reports are that pretty much all Irish universities have fallen in the international rankings due to reduced funding and Ireland's generally bottom of the rank rating for education funding. This was so in the OECD even during the so-called boom years of the celtic tiger and following cuts the only way is down - except for one 'five-star' university. It's a loada Booles if you ask me.

Any explanations as to what constitutes a 5-star university and what bright spark issued the press release and what bright spark chose to issue it on our national airwaves?
