President officiates at Gaisce Gold Award Ceremony

President Higgins presented the Gaisce Gold Awards to 77 young people who have completed their personal development challenges. 

Gaisce is the President’s awards scheme which aims to foster young people’s potential by encouraging them to set goals in a number of areas and then achieve them. 

At the awards ceremony at Dublin Castle, President Michael D. Higgins honoured young people who spent time working with voluntary organisations and getting involved in youth groups and clubs.
