Two Mayo Gaelic Footballers and a Sligo soccer player were among 78 students that received the Limerick Institute of Technology Sports Scholarship this academic year.
Mayo’s Seán Óg Tigue and Ciarán Gavin and Sligo’s Megan Masterson were among the students chosen across the region.
In a year when sporting events have been seriously impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sport and Recreation Office at LIT remains committed to supporting young athletic talent and the general health and wellness of the entire LIT community.
This year’s recipients excel at a number of sports including basketball, camogie, hurling, Gaelic football, handball, rugby, kickboxing and swimming.
Meanwhile, LIT’s Sports Scholarship programme is now open for applications at lit.ie/sport.
