I am delighted to have recently started lecturing on the honours degree programme in Brewing & Distilling at IT Carlow. This programme has only just been launched and is the first degree programme in Ireland for Brewing & Distilling. I am also delighted to be reacquainted with one of my old mentors from Guinness St James’s Gate – Dr Ger Murphy who lectures in Yeast Biochemistry.
There are some great facilities here and I’m enjoying getting back into practicals with mash baths, GC’s etc and doing my bit to help build the brewing capabilities of the college.
Here I am teaching full time students direct from secondary school which is very different to training people in the workplace ! So far I am enjoying the variety.
