Karina meets with Dace who is the manager of a local restaurant and bakery in the centre of Cavan Town. She explains how this venture is going and tells us about the support of the community.
We move then to the Cavan Adult Learning Centre where the local ETB is based. Karina chats to three trainees – Stephen, Sharon and Michael – who have gone back to adult education.
We learn how this has changed their lives. She also visits the Slieve Russell Hotel in Ballyconnell where the Annual Adult Literacy Organisers Association (ALOA) Conference is taking place.
We talk to chairperson, Siobhan McEntee, along with Martin O’Brien, the CEO of Cavan / Monaghan ETB, and Aoife McCormack from Kerry ETB.
Finally, Karina gets a work out at the CrossFit Centre in Cavan. She chats to Barry Murphy about these fitness classes and what they provide its members.
