Communications and Marketing Officer for CIT, Mervyn O’Mahony said: “Choosing the right college course is a crucial decision for students so it’s very important to have the right information to hand when making it. That’s why an evening like this is so very important – people can have a look at the campus, meet CIT staff, and ask questions that can help in making the right CAO choices”.

The evening is free and open to students, parents and teachers.
