Connacht GAA Student Bursary Awards Night 2019

Students from the third level sector were acknowledged by Connacht GAA in the annual student bursary awards at a ceremony which took place in the Connacht GAA Centre on Saturday last, the 5th January.

The bursary scheme has been in place for 12 years and awards members of the association who are active members in their higher education club. In all 45 promising young Connacht GAA players and administrators have been included in the province’s annual bursary scheme. All five Connacht counties are represented in the initiative which provides financial assistance to students who have displayed potential and commitment on the Gaelic games front.
