Bantry Youthreach centre has recently opened a new hairdressing facility at its premises in St. Gobans, Seskin. The facility was developed over the summer by the staff and students and training began early in September.

Instruction in hairdressing skills will be offered to students as part of the FETAC level three and four programmes already running in the centre and it is expected that there will be great demand over the coming months for places. Students who study hairdressing in Bantry Youthreach centre will be eligible to apply for hairdressing courses in Further Education Colleges such as Clonakilty Community College, St. John’s Central College and Cork College of Commerce.

The co-ordinator of Bantry Youthreach Centre, Mr. Rónán Ó’Caoimh says: “This new course is an exciting development in Bantry Youthreach and is a great addition to the wide range of courses we already offer such as; Woodwork, Metalwork, Driver Education, Car Mechanics, Art, Cookery, Outdoor Pursuits, Career Guidance and Computers.” Youthreach is Ireland’s education and training programme for early school leavers. The programme is directed at unemployed young early school leavers aged 15-20.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
