We are delighted to announce that the winner of the second Eoin Murray Memorial Scholarship is Rose Keating. Rose has won multiple awards, such as the Sean Dunne Young Writers award and the Write Here, Write Now competition. She has been published in several journals, magazines and podcasts. Rose is also a spoken-word performer.
This year we had an even greater number of entries. These were shortlisted into a list of 19 applicants. This list was forwarded to the scholarship judge panel and this year's guest judge, Cónal Creedon,
After some deliberation, the final shortlist was as follows:
We would like to thank again all students who took the time to enter the scholarship and encourage those of you who did not succeed this year to enter again next year. It is exciting to see interest and applications to the scholarship growing.
We look forward to reading and hearing the work Rose creates with the scholarship!
