Kerry College interviews begin

Kerry College is about to begin its course recruitment interviews for places in next September’s courses.

All courses with an employment focus scheduled to start in September are now conducting online interviews via Zoom. A first round of place offers will take place after these interviews have taken place.

Kerry College Admissions Officer Ella O’Donoghue is offering advice to applicants in advance of the admissions interviews:  “As always, applicants should have a good knowledge of the course content, what they hope to get from the course in terms of skills and development and an idea of where they would like to be employed afterwards. We know that getting work placement sponsors – which is a key part of many of our courses is a tough ask at the minute – applicants should do what they can on that front.”

Life under the new normal at Brandon Gym

It’s a case of changing times at the Brandon Hotel Leisure Centre after finally reopening last Thursday, as staff and members alike get used to life under the new normal.

Manager of the Leisure Club Craig Clifford and his team had been preparing for the reopening after the Covid-19 pandemic forced their doors to close during mid-March.

“Thankfully, we opened for Phase One, and normal opening hours resumed,” said Craig, who is delighted to be back at work.
