In the Summer of 2006, AlanO'Hanlon of the Meath VEC nominated me for an ACE Award (Adults Continuing Edication Awards ). I was delighted when I made lt to the short list.

The Awards Ceremony took place in the Westin Hotel Dublin, on the night of the 11th November 2006. I came runner up in the Unique Contribution Section.
