All Ireland Scholarship Award
David Byrne, who left St Louis in August with 4A* grades, is a recipient of the prestigious All Ireland Scholarship 3rd level education award. In recognition of this achievement, Mr. JP McManus, sponsor of the scheme, hosted an awards ceremony at the University of Limerick on Saturday 24th November.
The scholarship programme was established in 2008 to support many gifted young students across Ireland by providing them with financial support thus enabling them to participate in all aspects of university life. David will receive £5000 per annum for a total of five years towards his Molecular Engineering course at Imperial College, London.
We have no doubt that a very bright future lies ahead for David and this could be the first of many awards he receives in 3rdlevel education and beyond.
