COVID-19 update – Carmichael closed from 12pm, 19th March until further notice

12 March 2020

In light of escalation over the weekend in terms of advice regarding social distancing and “flattening the curve” from public health officials and the address by An Taoiseach on 17th March 2020, the board of Carmichael has decided that the Carmichael Centre will close until the advice from public health officials advise that the required measures in respect to social distancing are relaxed. At the moment, we are working to a March 29th date but expect that the Government will extend this if the situation as is expected, worsens.

Carmichael will defer our training events from 12th March until 30th April. We regret any inconvenience caused. In the meantime our full suite of eLearning (which can be accessed at any time from any location), is available on

We are facilitating working from home for our staff. We will maintain online supports including email and newsletters. We are contactable by email if you need some advice or guidance on governance related issues. We will also be working on developing and updating resource material.

We will update everyone again when we expect to re-open.

Carmichael wishes everyone stay safe during this difficult time.
