coming year with individual students getting payments of up to €1,750. Scholarships are
awarded on a yearly basis but they can be repeated.

Soccer fans were well represented this year with scholarship going to   Danny Keohane from Ballyshannon,  Darragh Healy Ballisodare and Keith Nibbs from Sligo .
