Garda Youth Diversion Projects
On the 6th December 2015 two Offaly based Garda Youth Diversion Projects came together to celebrate the achievements of their participants.
The Fusion Project from Tullamore and the Acorn Project from Edenderry held a joint FETAC presentation evening to honour the young students from both projects who were successful in attaining their certificates.
Guests of honour for the evening were Circuit Court Judge, Keenan Johnston and District Court Judge, Catherine Staines.
Judge Keenan Johnston said he was honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to be present. He said he felt privileged to witness the success of these young people through the presentation of their awards. They had to achieve in the face of adversity, in the face of layers of difficulty and disadvantage. To have done so and to have persevered, mark their achievement out as being special.
