It gives me great pleasure to introduce the All Ireland Scholarships, which were established in 2008 to financially support many gifted young students across the island of Ireland. 125 All Ireland Scholarships from the 32 counties are awarded each year.
Just as each of the 1,688 recipients of the Scholarship to date have blossomed and grown throughout their studies, I have been delighted to see the growth in the Scholarship programme itself since inception, with an active Alumni Association formed in 2017. The Alumni Association is driven by recipients of the Scholarship and contains a network of members who are pro-active in helping each other and contributing to the welfare of society.
The Scholarships would not be what they are without the dedication of students to their studies, and the respect they have for education. Their academic achievements are remarkable, with 1,244 successful All-Ireland Scholarship recipients having emerged with primary and post graduate degrees to date. It gives me great pride and pleasure to see so many of these young people fulfil their promise and I look forward to observing their continued growth in the coming years.
When I found out that I won an All Ireland Scholarship?
I couldn't believe it and I was just instantly so thankful and grateful.
