As you are aware there is an ongoing situation developing in Ireland in relation to the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Today the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced that all childcare facilities, schools, colleges and universities are to close until the 30th of March. The LINC team are making every effort to ensure that these closures will not affect you progressing with your LINC modules. You should continue to interact with the lessons as usual and complete your assignments. If you haven’t received your mentoring visit yet and are due one over the next number of weeks, your tutor will make contact with you in the coming days to make alternative arrangements for this. A statement from Eugene Wall, President of MIC, in relation to the closures can be found here.
