Congratulations to 2nd Year Student Niamh Byrne - 2015 Recipient of the CSM Music Scholarship Awarded Annually to Castleknock Community College

The CSM Annual Scholarship Award to a student of Castleknock Community College is now in its 8th Year. The award is to a student of CCC and the music department of CCC invite proposals from students detailing why they feel they should be the recipient. There are lots of entries and strong competition for this much coveted year of music tuition in the student's chosen instrument and also musicianship theory for the fortunate recipient. 

We are delighted to announce that this year, Castleknock Community College's Music Department have awarded the CSM Scholarship to Niamh Byrne, 2nd Year Student at CCC.

Niamh has already been studying the Guitar and will continue her musical development with Guitar Teacher Stevie Darragh, a very fine and popular teacher of guitar at the school here. She is also going to study Musicianship / Theory with Mr. Ronan Dikker, our committed percussion / piano & theory teacher. Both teachers are really looking forward to teaching this most enthusiastic student. Niamh is absolutely delighted as are her parents and she is very excited about meeting her new teachers. 

We would like to congratulate Niamh on her achievement in securing this scholarship and wish her every success for the year ahead.
