The latest recipient of the Greg Turley Bursary Award was the multi-talented hockey, rugby and football player Kathryn Dane. The Award was presented as part of the Impartial Reporter’s Celebration of Sports Awards to Kathryn when she won ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’.
The star studded event at the Lough Erne Resort, attended by just under 300 people, was undoubtedly a fitting tribute to Fermanagh’s latest sporting talent of all ages.
A number of Kathryn’s success to date include playing hockey for Enniskillen 1st XI, being part of the Northern Ireland U17 International team at UEFA Elite Championships and representing Ireland Girls’ Rugby 7s at FIRA European Championships in Sweden. Kathryn also won the Ulster Cup with Enniskillen Ladies U18s, Fermanagh Mallards Division Three Cup Final and the Tag Rugby Ulster Championship with the Collegiate Team.
Lauri McCusker Director of the Fermanagh Trust, which administers the Greg Turley Bursary Awards said “Congratulations to Kathryn. She is indeed a worthy winner and an excellent ambassador to Fermanagh’s young sports stars. Kathryn is incredibly talented and no doubt has a bright future ahead.”
The Greg Turley Awards were established after the death of the popular and inspirational St Michael’s College teacher as a way of perpetuating his memory, and of continuing his work of helping others in a practical way. The Awards support young people in the fields of community service, sport, music and drama. For more information click here.
