Foróige young people Michael Collins, Dean McKeon, Brandon McDonagh and Daniel O’Halloran received the Asgard Perpetual Award from Sail Training Ireland on Saturday at the Mansion House. The Galway teenagers participated in a 10 day Tall Ship voyage on the seas around New Zealand in 2014 and the award was presented to them in recognition of their exceptional achievement. They were accompanied by their Youth Workers Pearse O'Toole, Andrew Byrne and Martin McDonagh. The trip was organised by the Atlantic Youth Trust and is part of a long-term plan to create an all island youth development organisation that will use a purpose built tall ship to educate and develop young people.
