PALMERSTOWN GRADUATE RECEIVES TOP AWARD

A Palmerstown Primary Education graduate, Shane Whelan, had double cause for celebration after he had achieved ‘top of his class’ status at the annual Hibernia College conferring ceremony which was held at Dublin’s Convention Centre recently.

Shane was honoured with An Duais Ghaeilge Gael Linn – the Gael Linn Irish prize, for achieving the highest grade in Irish from his cohort on the Primary programme. A teacher in Churchtown, Shane was amongst 750 graduates to qualify in Primary or Post-Primary teaching at the ceremony, during which, the 10,000th graduate from Hibernia College was also conferred.
