In the excitement of the awards ceremony,Elena managed to grab a quick moment with the two delighted winners- Lorcan Tuohy from Borrisokane CC (also a member of YMT!) and Laura Walsh from Sacred Heart Clonakilty. In the final round of the Richard Burke Ty Personified Award, the judges failed to separate Lorcan and Laura and they were announced as joint winners. This is the inaugural year of the award which is named in memory of Richard Burke, former Minister for Education, who introduced the TY programme into schools in Ireland.
