Computer Classes: The nature of the broadband connection in Mountcollins school and in the vicinity of the local Community Centre would not support a web connection for a class. In the meantime the most immediate way of learning about computers is to avail of the classes in the old Tech in Abbeyfeale (now the Abbeyfeale Community Education Centre) Classes are free to people who do not have a full Leaving Cert, are in receipt of a Social Welfare payment, are on Job Seekers Allowance or CE Scheme, or hold a Medical Card. Beginners classes commence on September 16th. If interested please contact 068-31198
