………. as Ceara & Saoirse’s DCU scholarships bring the total scholarships for Our Lady’s in 2018 to eight!!

Congratulations to two recent past pupils of Our Lady’s, Saoirse Duffy & Ceara Finnegan who were the recipients of Entrance Scholarships to DCU on foot of their excellent achievements in the Leaving Cert 2018. Saoirse is studying Global Business (France) while Ceara is doing a Bachelor of Education. Both girls have been wonderful role models while in Our Lady’s and we are very proud of their achievements to date.


These two DCU scholarships bring the total number of Entrance scholarships for the academic year 2018-2019 to 8, a phenomenal number in one year and one which Our Lady’s is justifiably proud of.

First to the podium was Eleanor Fitzpatrick who is studying International Arts in NUI Galway. Later the following month saw Mr Brohan attend an Awards Ceremony in UCD where Hugh Brennan (Economics & Finance), Keshawa Yatagpitiyiya (Science), Mark Hughes (Commerce) and Tiernan Duffy (Business & Law) were all recognised for their excellent Leaving Cert results. Next stop was Trinity College Dublin where Tara McNally who is studying Business Economics and Social Science was awarded an Entrance Scholarship. Saoirse Duffy & Ceara Finnegan rounded the number of scholarships to 8 with their awards in DCU last week.


Speaking at the school during the week, Principal, Mr Eddie Kelly offered his congratulations to all the students who had been awarded scholarships. “These young people have not achieved such fantastic success without alot of hard work and effort and indeed have reaped the rewards of their efforts, they are a credit to themselves and their families and we in Our Lady’s are very proud of their achievements. They are wonderful ambassadors for the school and they epitomise all that is good in Our Lady’s, striving to do their best, to make the most of their talents while remaining true to their core values of honesty, integrity and fair play.  All of the staff join with me in wishing them well in their future endeavours, as we do to all the class of 2018 in their chosen career paths and courses.  Of course none of this could happen without the hard work of a very committed and dedicated staff and on behalf of the students I would like to acknowledge their unfaltering committment and interest in the well being of their students.”Congratulations to all concerned.
