Following a demonstration of the technology, Kinsale College Principal, Liz Moynihan, spoke about the college and the role it has played in education in Kinsale as well as it’s ambition to be completely digital. Three students of Kinsale College spoke about their experiences there which were so positive and uplifting. Christopher Good spoke about studying Multi-Media, how much he has learned and how much confidence the course gave him. Sharon Crosbie described how an ad for the College in the Kinsale Advertiser prompted her to sign up for TV & Film production course and while Diana Junio, a mom of 3 small kids, is now in her first year of a Degree in Occupational Therapy at UCC.
