On Friday 24th November Paddy Lynch, a sixth year student was presented with an award to mark the contribution that he has made to his local community. The award ceremony was organised by the Kildare Garda district and was established to acknowledge young people's organising skills and sense of civic duty.
Paddy is a member of the Leixlip Youth Project and he was instrumental in organising activities that help form positive relationships between local youth and Gardai from the Leixlip area.
Paddy was presented with his award by Supt Gerry Wall from Leixlip Station. We are extremely proud of Paddy's achievement and we wish him well with the project.
