Tá áthas an domhain orainn buaiteoirí na scoláireachtaí Gaeltachta a fhógairt! We are delighted to announce the winners of our annual Gaeltacht scholarship programme. This year we are sending 8 students from across our student body to Coláiste Sheosaimh, Carna in Conamara. The value of each scholarships is €1,000 per student! The students will spend three weeks during the summer in this beautiful part of Ireland where Irish is still the spoken language of the community. This is an amazing opportunity for our students and we here in the college are proud to be able to provide such an opportunity to our students! The focus in these courses is on learning Irish in a fun, natural way. The days are filled with activities; kayaking and water sports, drama, sports, dance, singing, céilís, trips to the Aran Islands or Galway City, and team building activities. It really is trip that will create a lifetime of memories and friendships for those lucky enough to have won a scholarship! Congratulations to all our successful students! Go n-éirí leo!  The scholarships are kindly jointly sponsored by Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board and Enniscorthy Vocational College. Thanks to Mr. Darren O'Ceallaigh for organising the wonderful opportunity for the eight students.
