The sport scholars for 2022-23 were celebrated at an event for family and friends at the Dining Hall, Trinity College Dublin last Monday.

“We’re delighted to be celebrating the strongest calibre of student athletes that we’ve had for many years, certainly in the history of the Trinity Sport Scholarship awards programme. It is quite outstanding the number and level of student athletes that we have in Trinity including international, senior county and academy pathway athletes. We’re very excited about their prospects and potential over the coming months and years.”
