Ireland awards ceremony
TRAINEES who made
outstanding contributions to the Tall Ships voyages
organised in 2022 by the charity Sail Training Ireland
were recognised at the Annual Awards Ceremony in the
Mansion House, Dublin on 28th January 2023.
The award winners were among the 546 trainees who sailed
on voyages on tall ships last year. Since 2011, 3,000
young people from all backgrounds and abilities have
availed of the opportunities provided by Sail Training
Ireland (STIrl) to participate in training and
self-development programmes. These are designed to offer
a change in direction, perspective, attitude, and
behaviour leading to self-confidence, motivation, and
the acquisition of new skills.
