Two Killarney students were amongst the winners of the Killarney Credit Union Third Level Educational Bursary Award.

Lucia Hurmson from Kilcummin who is studying Social Care in IT Tralee, and Oran O’Donoghue from Loreto Road who is studying Biotechnology in NUIG, received an award for €1,000 each.

The bursary award was open for those who are attending third level for the first time and are also members of Killarney Credit Union. Mature students and those attending college abroad were eligible to apply.

“This year, we had over 65 applicants for our Third Level Bursary Award,” Karena McCarthy, Youth and Marketing Officer at Killarney Credit Union, said.

“In light of the increasing costs of attending third level, we are delighted to support these First Year students as they begin their academic journey and also wish all those that applied continued success in their studies.”

A further €1,000 was presented to Ellen O’Sullivan from Cahersiveen who is studying Food Science and Nutrition in University of Limerick and Rebecca O’Sullivan from Kenmare who is studying Nutrition and Health in CIT.
