My Department has no role in relation to self-financing evening courses delivered by Education and Training Boards (ETBs).  However, officials have made enquiries about the matter and I understand from Kerry ETB have confirmed that the night classes in Art in Colaiste Gleann Lí on Mondays and Tuesday evenings have finished for the term as scheduled at the end of March and are not be due to commence again until September. The night classes are advertised in the course brochure as short-term courses that take place over an eight week period.  Kerry ETB plans to continue these night courses but intends to relocate them to a building adjoining Colaiste Gleann Lí when they recommence in September.
