Lovely hurling! Waterford’s James Flavin win sports scholarship
One Waterford hurler is off to real winner this season with the news that James Flavin is among 56 international athletes to receive the Limerick Institute of Technology Sports Scholarship this academic year.
The recipients were honoured at a special event at LIT, Moylish Campus on March during which keynote speaker World Rugby Referee and former LIT Sport Scholarship recipient Joy Neville spoke of the value of sports scholarships and the opportunities open to the recipients during their time at LIT.
In its third year, the new LIT’s Sports Scholarship Programme provides athletic support, focuses on individual welfare, and includes off-field mentoring and education support to its recipients.
This year’s recipients excel at a number of sports including basketball, camogie, hurling, Gaelic football, handball, rugby, kickboxing and swimming.
