The Award Ceremony took place recently in Cavan Crystal Hotel. Bishop Leo O’Reilly attended the Awards and Alan O’Mara was the guest speaker at the event. 87 young people aged between 16- 18 received various levels of Awards on the day. There were recipients from 10 different parishes and numerous schools throughout the Diocese. Alan gave a very thought provoking speech to the young people which will resonate with them for a long time to come. Our number of recipients has doubled in recent years and we hope it will continue to grow. Anyone who is interested in doing the award please contact Youth Director: Carina: 0494375004 (ext 103) or
