Two Galway third level students honoured by Tánaiste for entries to EU competition
Galway Bay fm newsroom – Two Galway third level students have been honoured by Tánaiste Micheál Martin for their entries to a nationwide competition to mark 50 years of Ireland’s EU membership
Ikechukwu Ogbuchi who lives in Ballybane wrote an opinion piece entitled ‘How are EU values relevant in today’s Ireland?’
The opinion piece by Josh Craughwell from Briarhill was called ‘Risen from the depths of war, Irelands response to the Ukrainian crisis displays the best of European values’
The two Galway students emerged as finalists from a total entry of 5000, and were invited to an exhibition day at University College Cork.
The Tánaiste said the knowledge, self-assurance, and capacity of today’s young people to influence change may surpass those of any preceding generation.
