THE Irish School of Farriery in the RACE campus in Kildare town will host an open day on Tuesday, May 24th from 3pm-5pm. Anyone interested in pursuing a career in farriery is welcome to attend.

Sharon McConnell, manager of Farriery Ireland, said: “The open day will be an ideal opportunity to learn about the farriery trade and the details of the apprenticeship. The day is mainly for secondary school students but open to everyone interested in a career as a farrier. We have our first female apprentice in the school this year and we hope that sets an example for others to follow.”

The tour and demonstrations will take about an hour. Places are limited and advance registration is required.
