Coiste na nOg Loch Garman is again running its Irish language scholarship scheme in 2016 and anybody from Ferns who might be interested is asked to contact our Coiste na nOg Secretary, Mag O'Leary-Doyle, before Sunday January 24.
The scholarships will be to Coláiste Cholumba at An Cheahrú Rua in Connemara, and are for summer courses designed to give and improve students fluency and develop their understanding of Irish in a fun and educational environment.
The courses are fully accredited by the Department of Education and the Department of the Gaeltacht. Currently there are 14 places available to Coiste na nÓg Loch Garman (Residential Course) from 28th June - 19th July. All clubs are being asked to submit names of interested members, and from these, a draw for the 14 available places will take place.
All applicants must be paid up members of the club, and between 14 and 18 years of age. The total cost of each scholarship will be €710, to be made up of €236 from the player, €237 from their club, and €237 for Coiste na nOg Loch Garman.
Again, anybody from Ferns who would be interested in a scholarship is asked to contact Mag O'Leary-Doyle before Sunday January 24.
