The best bit of advice I could give anyone thinking about going into dairy farming is to go out and get experience first hand on a farm. This way you will know if you enjoy it and have a passion to do it first hand. If you do then studying agriculture in school and then onto an ag college is a great foundation to get the required knowledge you will need in the future.

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Open Day at the National Tailoring Academy

Open Day at the National Tailoring Academy

The National Tailoring Academy is holding an open day and masterclass in Dublin on Friday 27 March to encourage more Irish students to pursue careers in either menswear or womenswear tailoring.

Taught by master tailors, the academy’s flagship programme is the post graduate diploma in bespoke fashion tailoring. The current programme is coming to an end in June with graduates expected to take up positions at fashion houses and costume design agencies around Ireland and Europe.

The academy, which opened its doors on Dublin’s Great Strand Street nearly two years ago, is also announcing a series of short courses and masterclasses throughout 2015 for less experienced sewers. These range from a week-long corsetry workshop over Easter to a day-long hand-tailored buttonhole masterclass in April to a tie-making workshop in June.

UK-based master tailor Brita Hirsch is delivering summer masterclasses over three consecutive weekends, focussing on jacket-making. Having worked in Hamburg with Tom Reimer, Hirsh’s clients included the late tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

The open day is open to the public and includes an invitation to tour the sewing facilities and cutting room floor.

The National Tailoring Academy is now accepting applications for the next one-year programme, due to start in October 2015.

Open Day Friday 27 March 10.30 -12.30
