Sinn Féin councillors Liz Kimmins and Mickey Larkin have commended young people from the Killeavy and Dromintee areas on receipt of their GoldMark Awards at a special ceremony held in Belfast City Hall recently. The awards were presented by Education Minister John O’Dowd and local girls who received awards were, Eugenia McGenity and Katie Tahney from Dromintee and Shauna Magill, Aine McParland, Niamh Flanagan and Megan Cameron from the Killeavey area. Councillor Liz Kimmins praised the girls saying; “It is fantastic to hear about young people taking an active role in their communities. Young people have so many talents and skills to offer but there are so many demands on their time that it is often impossible for them to participate in volunteering. “I hope that Shauna, Aine, Niamh and Megan are very proud of their achievements and that they continue with their good work.” Councillor Mickey Larkin echoed Liz’s sentiments saying; “Eugenia and Katie and all those who were awarded should be very proud of their achievements. These young ladies are a great example to all of us, young and old, to contribute back to our communities.”
