The winners of the JP McManus Scholarship Awards 2015 were announced at a ceremony on Friday, 6thth November, at the Dunraven Arms Hotel, Adare, Co. Limerick.

Eight students from Coláiste Mhichíl Secondary School, Sexton Street, Limerick were presented with a scholarship from Minister for Education & Skills, Jan O’Sullivan T.D towards their third level education to the value of €6,750 per annum. The scholarships are funded each year by JP McManus, who is a former pupil of the school.

Congratulating the winning students, JP McManus said: “Each of these students have seen their ambition and hard work rewarded with these scholarships. Having attained great results at secondary school, you now move on to 3rd Level education secure in the knowledge that your triumph will provide you the foundation to meet the educational challenges that lie ahead.”
