All You Need To Know About CAO Change Of Mind

Published

on

CAO Change of Mind facility closes on July 1st @ 5.15pm

The CAO Change of Mind facility is open until 5.15pm on Sunday, the 1st July, 2017 and gives applicants the opportunity to review their current choices, make changes if necessary and there is no charge for this facility.

Up to the deadline applicants can add, remove, or re-order course choices. Applicants can add any course to their list even if they did not include it in the application they submitted in February. The only exception to this are restricted entry courses which are clearly marked in the CAO handbook.

Applicants should also take this opportunity to revisit their Level 8 and Level 7/6 lists, and examine carefully both the courses they have applied for and the order in which they have been placed. CAO choices should be based on order of preference only and not on how students think they may have performed during the exams or indeed what they expect the cut-off points to be for the course they have chosen. That will not be known until Monday, August the 20th, the expected date for first round CAO offers to be issued. The golden rule is that courses must always be listed in order of preference.

In order to make changes to their course listing, applicants should log into their account on www.cao.ie using the 'my application' prompt. Here they will be asked for their CAO number, date of birth and password. Applicants can then enter their separate lists:  Level 8 and Level 7/6. A short video guide on the change of mind process is available on www.cao.ie.

Killarney art psychotherapist Katie O’Donoghue was delighted to spot her first children’s book on last Friday’s Late Late Toy Show!

‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ was written and illustrated by Katie, and published by Gill Books in July.

With almost every eye in Ireland on the Toy Show every year, children’s authors, illustrators and publishers compete for a much-coveted spot on the set. Aware that her book had been sent to Ryan, but not having heard anything from RTÉ, Katie was thrilled to see it in a prominent position. It was a wonderful surprise to discover ‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ had been placed in the front row of the book corner. There, it had a little chair of its own and was even embraced by a cuddly toy.

It was visible many times over the course of the evening, particularly during the book discussion, an incredibly proud moment for first-time author Katie.

“I have to admit, when I saw ‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ cradled in the teddy’s arms, I may have jumped up and down with excitement,” Katie told the Killarney Advertiser.

What began as a lockdown project while Katie was living in London and missing her family in Kerry, is providing comfort to children around the world.

Using a gentle story with gorgeous illustrations, Little Squirrel and his forest friends teach young people a variety of simple coping techniques.

“These skills will benefit children their entire lives and the book is even helpful for adults who are prone to worrying and overthinking,” she added.

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
