The Union of Students in Ireland is gearing up today for the annual Student Achievement Awards Ireland, which aims to recognise the contribution students and their representatives have made inside and beyond the student community.

The glittering awards ceremony, taking place in Dublin Castle this evening (20/04/2017) will honour students and invited guests from North and South of the island for their hard work and determination.

The awards will be hosted by journalist and online personality Clare Cullen, with the keynote address by Senator Lynn Ruane. ┬áThe evening will conclude with the presentation of the President’s Award.

SAAI nominations are open each year to members of the Union of Students in Ireland – the vast majority of college students’ unions on the island of Ireland. ┬áNominations and attendance for nominees and invited guests are free of charge.
