Farming scholarship

Pat McCormack, President of ICMSA presents the scholarship award to Cian McGahern, who was accompanied by his brother, James.

The four recipients of 2021 John Feely Scholarships have been announced with one being awarded to Longford’s Cian McGahern of Aughnacliffe, Edgeworthstown.

The prestigious €1500 scholarships are awarded by the John Feely Foundation and are distributed to outstanding young farm students in each of the four ICMSA organisational regions.

Presenting the cheques in the Limerick Head Office of the state’s specialist dairy farmer organisation last Thursday, ICMSA President, Pat McCormack, said that the more he saw of the next generations of Irish farmers, the more confident he felt about the continuation of our levels of commitment and technical excellence.
