Current Recipients 2016/2017

From athletics to handball, eventing to taekwondo, Trinity Sport, supported by Bank of Ireland, this year announced 68 scholars for 2016/2017, spanning 20 different sporting codes.

Ellen Ince, a two-time taekwondo European champion as well as a two-time world champion, competes in her first competition since becoming a sports scholar in Rome at the end of February.

Our Ladies Gaelic football trio of Áine Haberlin, Aisling Reynolds and Michelle Peel, all senior inter-county players in their own right, have seen the College through to another Giles Cup weekend, having won the Giles in 2015.

Fencer Philip Cripwell, ranked number one in Ireland in both under 23 and senior foil discipline, has been performing well with a 51st place finish in the World Cup Foil Championships in Terrassa, Spain in February.

Two of our rugby scholars, Colm Hogan and Jack Kelly, are currently part of the Irish under 20 Six Nations squad, with Jack being given the honour of captaining his country.

For the first time this year we have female rugby scholars. One of those, Niamh Byrne, most recently won the interprovincial series with Leinster.

Lorcan Tucker, who won his first senior cap for the Irish cricketers, has been named in the team for the T20 series against Afghanistan in India in March.

Aoife O’Halloran, one of our three basketball scholars, was named on the Irish under 20 team, and made it to the Under 20s National Cup Final with her club Killester, losing out to a strong DCU Mercy team in the final.
