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.

LIT confirms plans for new Ennis Campus

Posted on March 13, 2019

LIT has recently confirmed its plans to open a new campus in Ennis, Co. Clare on foot of a proposed capital investment of €0.75 million by Clare County Council.  Located on Bindon Street in Ennis town’s historic core, the new facility will enable a substantial increase in Higher Education activity in the town.

Reflecting LIT’s regional development remit, the LIT Ennis campus will join LIT’s existing campuses at Clonmel and Thurles in Co. Tipperary; Moylish and Clare Street in Limerick City; and a new engineering-focussed campus currently under development at Coonagh in Limerick. A total of six degree programmes in Social Care, Early Childhood Care and Education, and Marketing and Management are now available through the CAO at LIT in Ennis for September 2019 commencement.  Possibilities for evening and professional learning will also be opened up. 

Commenting on the news, LIT President, Professor Vincent Cunnane said, “We are delighted to be able to progress our plans in Ennis.  We intend to provide an expanded level of daytime undergraduate education through the CAO, as well as opening up the possibility of new evening courses and professional education. “This is a real vote of confidence in Clare. Crucially, by allowing us to broaden our offering, this new facility adds to the educational options available to people locally, while at the same time enabling us to respond to the needs of business and industry in Clare.” 

The announcement has also been welcomed by the Mayor of Clare Michael Begley and Mayor of Ennis Clare Colleran Molloy who said the delivery of CAO courses in Ennis “heralds a new era for the town, providing it with a real foothold in third level education.”
