Once piloted, the programme will be rolled out amongst the five partner institutions leading to the development and launch of a permanent resource that will be available for all staff. The programme will be delivered by ShoutOut, a charity that provides educational programmes in educational institutions in areas such as sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and intersex identity. The announcement today of the gender identity and diversity training programme coincides with Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), established to show support of trans identities and reject transphobia. Institute of Technology Carlow will mark its solidarity and support for the trans community today by raising the flag associated with this day at the Haughton Building and by supporting a social media campaign that rejects transphobia.Colette Lane, Director of EDI and People, Institute of Technology commented, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to be able to develop and implement this training and very much appreciate the funding provided to enable us to achieve this”.

The six-piece band then offered up a pair of covers with David Bromberg’s “New Lee Highway Blues” and the Grateful Dead’s “Cold Rain and Snow” followed by fan-favorite “Liza”. The band continued with speed and tenacity as they worked through “Sun Dog”, before delivering “Fayetteville Line” and “Kentucky Skies”. “Whispering Waters” off the bands 2004 self-titled album brought the first set to a close.Leftover Salmon – “Sun Dog”, “Fayetteville Line”[Video: Liz Ard]Leftover Salmon – “Kentucky Skies”[Video: Liz Ard]Following a brief setbreak, Leftover Salmon came back out to open their second set with a cover of Prince’s “7” before working through their comical and theatrical tune “Alfalfa’s”.
