“I found my time at Leitrim CTC very enjoyable. The Catering course was very interesting. I learned lots of different recipes and the food was very tasty! Everyday went by very quick as there was always something to do. The other classes were good also. I learned a lot of skills to help me for the future.  It’s a great place to learn and I will recommend it to anyone”.
