The Department encourages all students, past and present, to become members of the Classical Association of Ireland which can be done online at the website of the national organization. Membership includes subscription to the journal Classics Ireland. It also encourages all to participate in the activities of the local Cork branch of the CAI normally held once a month in the Cork Education Centre, almost directly across the Western Road from the college gates (see below for details of these activities).
