Students and staff from Good Counsel College, New Ross have been working tirelessly over the past two years fundraising for Gorodishche Orphanage.
Last May a group of TY students travelled to Belarus to volunteer with children and young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. Last week the group were recognised for their work at the Garda Youth Awards.
There were 24 awards given out on the night. The boys also won the over all award and will go forward to represent the county at the national awards in Port Laois later this month. They were all in shock but absolutely thrilled with their achievement. They have become local celebrities, even making it onto the local radio station!
