What our students say...

SineadHickey

" I chose to study Horticulture as my father works in the business and I had an interest in this while growing up. I chose ITB as the course had a lot of choices and work placement. I really enjoyed the hard landscape construction week & the group project work in the courtyard garden at Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown. I would like to follow a career in plant propogation, either in nursery stock production or food production. It's such a versatile course and opens so many doors to follow as a career ."
