Ashling Murphy Scholarships presented at Fleadh Cheoil

The first ever Ashling Murphy Scholarships were presented by members of her family at the Fleadh Cheoil na h’Eireann in Mullingar.

The Scholarships are in memory of the 23 year old teacher and musician who was tragically killed in January, and will support those pursuing educational projects in music and arts.

The loss of the teacher and musician has been felt deeply at this year’s Fleadh. Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann said that they wanted to recognise and remember her talent by naming these scholarships in her honour.
