The Irish Accountancy Awards were last night.
The Irish Accountancy Awards is an annual event recognising and celebrating excellence in the accountancy profession in Ireland. And, as StudyOnline.ie were finalists for an award in Excellence in Education & Training, we were excited to go.
Attending the awards on behalf of StudyOnline.ie was Director Cathal McNamara, Cenit Group Managing Director Vaeni MacDonnell as well as StudyOnline.ie lecturers, Tena Sheil and Colm Foley.
All had a great time at the event with many industry personnel in attendance as well. We were honoured to be considered for an award alongside them.
Unfortunately, the award didn’t go to StudyOnline.ie. Instead, to our colleagues at Maynooth University. It’s a well deserved win and they deserve the recognition for their hard work.
StudyOnline.ie were still humbled to be considered to make it as a finalist.

Once the awards were all handed out, we retired to the ballroom for a Casino fundraiser in aid of Focus Ireland. The consolation been that the more we lost, the more the charity benefitted
