Leitrim Co Board GAA is offering Gaeltacht Scholarships to Leitrim boys and girls as part of their promotion of an ghaeilge. These grants are open to registered and paid-up members of Leitrim clubs, boys or girls.
A draw will be made from the applications received at the February meeting of the Co Board. Five of the grants are part sponsored by Coláiste na bhFiann for attendance at their colleges in Sligo. If a student attends one of the Coláiste na bhFiann courses they are then eligible to enroll at the Cumann na bhFiann clubs in Ballinamore and Carrick on Shannon during the winter at a much reduced fee. Two other grants are for attendance at Coláiste Ó Direain on Inis Mór and are sponsored by that college. When students return they can claim their scholarship money on production of evidence of having successfully completed the course.
Application forms can be printed from the Leitrim GAA website www.leitrimgaa.ie under Scór section or can be had from the Secretary of any GAA club or from Seán Ó Súilleabháin, Rúnaí Cultúir agus Teanga, Béal an Átha Móir, Co Liatroma
Beidh na hiarratais le fail i ngach meanscoil sa Chontae freisin
