The 2019 All Ireland Scholarships Award Ceremony took place on Saturday 23rd November in the University Concert Hall, Limerick with Ireland Rugby Head Coach, Joe Schmidt as the guest of honour.
The scholarships programme was established, by JP McManus his wife Noreen and family, in 2008 to support many gifted young students across Ireland by providing them with financial support thus enabling them to participate in all aspects of university life. 125 All Ireland Scholarships from the 32 counties are awarded each year and 2019 saw the total number rise to 1,496, with 905 successful graduates having emerged with primary and post graduate degrees.
