A Donegal teacher has received a 2021 ASTI Achievement Award in recognition of his contribution to his school community and to sporting in Ireland.
The Achievement Award, which could not be presented during the pandemic, was presented at a reception in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Letterkenny on Friday, September 16.
Ollie Horgan, a teacher at St Eunan’s College in Letterkenny, has been manager of Donegal League of Ireland team Finn Harps since 2013, helping the team to compete at the highest level despite having fewer resources than other teams.
Ollie is also involved with coaching the Republic of Ireland schoolboys and coaches his own school’s soccer team.
The ASTI Achievement Awards recognise the outstanding contribution of second-level teachers to their students, schools, communities and to society.
The 2021 ASTI Achievement Award was presented to Ollie Horgan by Miriam Duggan, ASTI President, and Kieran Christie, ASTI General Secretary.
