Bonmahon student presented with medal by Minister of State for Food, Forestry and Horticulture

Mr. Andrew Doyle TD, Minister of State for Food, Forestry and Horticulture presented the Augustine Henry Memorial Medal to Eoin Glavey, third year BSc in Forestry student for his achievement in gaining highest marks in his final year on the BSc in Forestry.

Eoin, a native of Bonmahon, Co. Waterford, manages a successful tree care business in parallel with his studies. His excellent academic results to date are particularly noteworthy as he has managed to successfully balance work, student and family. Eoin is also awarded a travel bursary to join the Society of Irish Foresters on their forestry study tour to Poland in September.

The Augustine Henry Memorial Medal is awarded annually by the Society of Irish Foresters to recognise academic achievement in memory of Professor Augustine Henry, an internationally recognised plant collector and sinologist, who was founding Professor of Forestry at University College Dublin and assisted the development of the Irish Forest Service and the establishment of an Irish forest resource after centuries of active destruction and neglect.

The award ceremony took place at the Society of Irish Foresters Annual General Meeting at the Wicklow Mountains National Park HQ Office, Trooperstown, Laragh, Co Wicklow on Friday 7th April. In addition to presenting awards, the Minister also launched the Continuous Professional Development programme for Foresters. In his address, the Minister noted that:

“The advantages to professional foresters of engaging in such a comprehensive CPD programme are numerous and they include the maintenance of professional competence; enhancement of existing knowledge and skills and the opportunity to develop new ones; the creation of a structure of accreditation for training/information events organised by third parties; and lastly will help to identify emerging issues in terms of knowledge and skills that need to be addressed.”
