This year St Mary’s are awarding a bursary to the highest achieving students who are going to university to study Law.
The bursary has been made possible thanks to the generous contribution from one of Belfast’s leading Law firms Larkin Cassidy Solicitors who are based at Carlisle Circus in Belfast.
The Larkin Cassidy Award is designed to reward outstanding performance at A-Level and to encourage the pursuit of Law to degree level.
This year the bursary was shared by two outstanding students, Eoin Millar and Dubhaltach Wilson, who are both going to study law at Ulster University.
Eoin was Deputy Head Boy and Chairperson of the Eco Club in St Mary’s. After gaining 10A* at GCSE he maintained his excellent academic record, achieving top grades in History, Politics and Finance at A-Level.
Dubhaltach received A*AA in his chosen A-Levels of Irish, Maths and Politics. As well as being a high achiever academically, Dubhaltach was also an outstanding sportsman. He represented the school in both hurling and football and this year represented Antrim hurlers at Under 20 level. Based on his academic performance he was also awarded a Talented Athlete Scholarship for hurling from Ulster University.
The bursaries were presented by Sinead Larkin from Larkin Cassidy Solicitors at an awards lunch in Balmoral Golf Club. School Principal Siobhan Kelly and senior teacher Ms Oonagh Convery also attended the lunch. Principal Kelly congratulated the boys on their success and their contribution to St Mary’s over the past seven years. She thanked Sinead Larkin and past pupil Colm Tracey who presented the Physics bursary, and acknowledged the generous contributions from all Alumni and Friends of St Mary’s. St Mary’s is extremely grateful for the continued generosity, contributions and support received from all our Alumni and friends.
