The most important thing is that you like your subject area! It?s also important to do as well as you can throughout your degree. For example, I applied for PhD scholarship during my final year, so they were looking at my first, second and third year results. Finally, I find that liking people helps a lot.

Lidl is to create 100 jobs in Co Kildare after planning permission was recently granted to build a new distribution centre in Newbridge.

The new 54,000sqm regional distribution centre will be situated on the Naas Road and will employ 350 staff, an increase of 100 on the 250 who are employed at Lidl's current distribution centre in the town.

The development includes the construction of a significant stretch of new public road, which will form the first part of the Newbridge bypass. The company is in the process of tendering both the road infrastructure work and the distribution facility and plans to begin construction in April of this year.

It was in 2000 when Lidl burst onto the Irish grocery market and changed the face of shopping in Ireland.Since then,they have opened more 190 stores across the island of Ireland.
