A transition year student from Kilbeggan’s Mercy Secondary School, Emily O’Brien, has secured a scholarship to Germany this summer.

The Castletown-Geoghegan girl, daughter to Enda and Sandra O’Brien, is one of only five Irish students to have obtained this much sought after scholarship.

Emily, who achieved one of the top results in German in the country in her Junior Cert, attained the scholarship after undergoing a rigorous interview process last week in the Goethe Institute led by Frau Barbara Schmidt, Ms Maria Lorigan, senior DES German inspector and Herr Andreas Zinn, head of the Language Department.

She is also captain of Mercy Kilbeggan’s German Debating Team who are set to meet St Killian’s Deutsche Schule in the National Semi Finals of the German Debating competition on Friday March 4.
