Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness and Deputy First Minister has made bursary awards as part of the Bobby Sands Gaeltacht Scholarship to pupils of St Colm’s High School in Twinbrook, where Bobby Sands lived.

The bursary is a joint initiative taken by Colin Sinn Féin and the Bobby Sands Gaeltacht Scholarship, a recently-formed group of local business people dedicated to helping children interested in learning and speaking Irish.
