Leader - Invitation to training From Kilkenny LEADER Partnership. The course will have 10 sessions and will run from January to May. The course will feature a seminar on health and safety, another aspect of the course is designed to help your participants benefit from the new social media such as Facebook, Twitter and to find out how to use the Internet more effectively to raise awareness, inform people and get your message across. It will also look at the tourism potential of your area and how to enter the new Fáilte Ireland Tourism Towns Competition. Finally, media specialists will show you how to go about making and editing video and how to record and edit a DVD. The course aims to be as practical as possible and will include a number of fieldtrips and outdoor sessions. These will focus on habitats within your area and how best to survey, identify and maximise the value of your area for wildlife. In addition to this, an ecologist will undertake a ‘walkabout’ visit in each of the participating areas to investigate the wildlife potential of each area. The course will be held on Wednesday evenings. The first session is on Wednesday the 16th of January. It will be held in The Heritage Council headquarters at Church Lane, Kilkenny. Notes and background information will be supplied at each session. This is a very worthwhile project. Anyone interested in this very interesting course is asked to contact either Ned Kirwan or Rev. Nicholas Flavin on or before Monday 14th January.
