Jonathan McMaw, Lisa Wilson and Tiárnán Moore, all in their first year, were the top three performing students in their Introductory Financial Accounting Module assessment while second year students Neil McAleenan, Cormac Birt and Kim Curry were recognised as the top performers in their Financial Accounting assessments. The award scheme, now in its third year, will provide the six students with the opportunity of mentored work experience and summer placements at BDO NI, and this year is particularly special. The scheme has been renamed the BDO Miceal Murphy Award, in tribute to a former recipient of the award who sadly passed away last year. In dedicating the award to Miceal’s memory, BDO NI believes his enthusiasm will live through the current and future student award recipients. Miceal’s parents, Fidelma and Kevin Murphy, were invited to join three of the new recipients along with staff at BDO NI to officially acknowledge the new Award and to recall and celebrate Miceal’s time at with the firm in 2015. The work experience and summer placements for the six prize-winning students will be based in BDO’s Belfast office, giving them the chance to learn the basics of accountancy and develop professional skills and knowledge while working with a range of some of Northern Ireland’s successful businesses.
