What are your interests?



Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.



Thinking of a career in Film?

The IFI have organised a great event for second-level students

Thinking of a career in Film?

The Irish Film Institute and the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival are proud to present their Careers In Screen Day which has a number of events for young people interested in finding out more about working in the film industry.

The first guest confirmed for the 2019 event is Lenny Abrahamson, the Oscar-nominated director of RoomAdam and PaulFrank, and The Little Stranger.

This event, aimed at Senior Cycle second-level students aged 15 to 18, is an opportunity for students to hear from a whole variety of film industry practitioners, to learn about their work, how they got there and what advice they might give to young people starting out. Whether it’s the craft side of the industry, working in front of the camera or behind, as well as other areas such as production or casting, there will be something for different interests.

Last year’s guests included actor Moe Dunford, costume designer Joan Bergin, cinematographer Richard Hendricks, director-editor Emer Reynolds, casting agent Louise Kiely, and Brown Bag Films animator Darragh O’Connell. A number of third-level institutions will also be on hand to offer guidance on the day.

This year’s Careers in Screen Day will take place on Thursday, February 28th from 10.30am – tickets are now on sale here.
