Congratulations to Sinead O’Hara on receiving her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Sinead, who attends Action Mental Health’s BOOST programme at New Horizons Fermanagh, was presented with the coveted award by HRH The Princess Royal during a ceremony at Hillsborough Castle this week. Sinead was accompanied by a number of other award winners from Fermanagh, and Mrs Greenaway, who runs the Carrowhony Pet farm, Maguiresbridge, where Sinead volunteers regularly. Well done Sinead!
