The Irish Field offers internship to Enniskillen students
on 27 March 2015
An honours student will spend 11 months with the paper putting together technical content for horse-owning readers

THE Irish Field and the College of Agriculture Food & Rural Enterprise at Enniskillen Campus (CAFRE) have joined together to offer one student in Equine Management 11 months work at the paper starting in July 2015.

The successful student will be chosen from those graduating from CAFRE Enniskillen Campus this summer with an Honours or Foundation Degree in Equine Management. The details of The Irish Field Graduate Internship was announced at the College this week by The Irish Field’s Managing Editor Leo Powell and CAFRE’s Head of Equine Education Seamus McAlinney. They were joined by CAFRE Director John Fay and Caitriona Murphy, Editor of the Irish Horse World.

Speaking at the launch, Leo Powell said: “This is a hugely exciting collaboration for us. Our sister publication the Irish Farmers Journal has been running a very successful internship programme for some years and we hope that ours will replicate that success. The graduate intern will join a great team within the paper to provide technical equine material, while also being immersed in all aspects of the media business. I have always been hugely impressed by the quality of graduates of CAFRE and this is endorsed by the fact that so many leading organisations within the industry support the college through bursaries and other programmes.”

“We are thrilled to welcome The Irish Field on board for this most significant programme. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a student here to work with such a prestigious title. I look forward to fostering the excellent relationship we have with the paper in the years ahead,” said CAFRE’S Seamus McAlinney.

Applications for the internship close on Wednesday, April 15th and the successful applicant will be announced publicly at the CAFRE Enniskillen Campus Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, June 24th.
