Brian Howard, Marketing and Development Officer, said: 'It was a pleasure to meet both winners, and we wish them all the best in their future. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our applicants and encourage you all to apply next year.

'We are delighted to continue this Bursary and keep alive the memory of our great mentor Martin Mullen. Martin was the manager of the former Balbriggan Credit Union Ltd, now Progressive Credit Union Ltd until his untimely death in 2009.

'He was a great believer of self-development, and his inspiration is still vastly changing young peoples lives through our 'Martin Mullen Bursary' funding for further education.'
