Gaeltacht Scholarships & Scór na bPaisti Finals

A busy week on the cultural side of Westmeath GAA saw the presentation of the 2018 Gaeltacht Scholarships on Tuesday 17 April while the finals of the Scór na bPaisti competition was held on Wednesday 18 April in The Downs GAA Centre.

TEG Cusack Park hosted the presentation of the 2018 Scholarships where six young people were awarded part scholarships to the value of €400 each sponsored by Westmeath GAA and Club Iarmhi. At total of 57 people attended interviews held in March and the difficulty lay in having to turn down so many excellent candidates who were deserving of scholarships in their own right. The three interviewers were Barbara Orme, Ciaran Reynolds and TP O Gorman were highly inpressed with the High Standards and were fulsome in their praise for all who attended the interviews.

The six successful candidates were as follows;

Meabh Nic Giolla Leith (St Lomans)      

Colin Mac Aodh (Killucan)                        

Aine Ni Dhaibheid (St Oliver Plunketts)  

Sinead Clarke (Castlepollard)                    

 Oisin O Floinn (Southern Gaels)          

Caoimhe De Tiuit (St Oliver Plunketts)   

The presentations were made by Westmeath GAA Cultural Officer Aidan Walsh with Club Iarmhi representatives Rose Corcoran and Vincent Maguire
