The recipient of the prestigious Holmes O’Malley Sexton Law Scholarship was announced today on campus at University of Limerick. Final year student Patrick Carr was presented with the merit-based scholarship for his outstanding level of performance to date in his law and accounting degree at University of Limerick.
Commenting on the scholarship award, Holmes O’Malley Sexton Managing Partner Harry Fehily said,
“Recognising dedication and hard work aligns with the Holmes O’Malley Sexton values. Each year we award a scholarship to a law student at University of Limerick that has performed exceptionally in their studies. Patrick is a very worthy recipient this year and we wish him every success in his final year studies and career in law.”
Working closely with UL Foundation, Holmes O’Malley Sexton endows an annual scholarship for a student that has obtained the highest quality credit average based on law modules taken over 2 years either LLB in Law and European Studies or Bachelor of Arts in Law and Accounting.
UL Foundation’s Sarah Hartnett congratulated Paul Carr on his outstanding academic achievements, saying,
“Scholarships are an important way to encourage competition in an academic environment, providing reward to the selected candidate and developing relationships between students and industry. The Holmes O’Malley Sexton Scholarship is a wonderful example of how leading firms in Ireland play an important role in supporting the University sector.”
Originally from Donegal, Patrick Carr was ‘delighted to be the recipient of the Holmes O’Malley Sexton Scholarship this year’ and he hopes to continue his studies with a Masters specialising in Tax at National University of Galway next year.
