Published on: Tuesday, 02 September 2014
Terence MacSwiney student Conor Lynch walked through the doors of the CIT Student Centre this week as the first person in his family to attend a third level college.
Conor, from Mount Eden Road in Gurranabraher will study Bachelor of Engineering in Marine Electrotechnology (CR805) at the National Maritime College of Ireland in Ringaskiddy. It may involve four buses a day, and many years of travelling and study but Conor is excited to begin his course on the 15th September.
His parents, Kevin and Vicky, are thrilled at the prospect of his new departure and credit his level headed attitude and the encouragement of his teachers with the achievement. Willie McAuliffe, Principal, Terence MacSwiney Community College, said: “We are delighted with Conor’s accomplishment and wish him the very best of luck.”
Elaine Dennehy of CIT Access Service added: “We are thrilled that Conor’s dedication to his studies has paid off. His achievement is a product of hard work and dedication not only on his part but also on the part of his parents, teachers, school management and his guidance counsellor, Pamela O’Leary. We wish him every success in his chosen programme of study.”
