Young Carer of the Year Winners Visit the College (5)
Second year Arts Scholarship students had the pleasure of talking with Sam Norris (18) and Una Mc Nicholson (17) - previous winners of the prestigious 'Young Carer of the year Award' today.
Sam and Una gave us a truthful, frank and honest account of what it is like to be a young carer in Ireland and discussed the label of 'young carer' and what it essentially means.
We were all inspired by their courage, dedication and maturity. Sam and Una are two truly remarkable teenagers, who's insightful discussion today will undoubtedly help the second year scholarship students devise a authentic, original and accurate script around the often overlooked and underrated topic of young carers in Ireland.
