Galway East TD Seán Canney has extended congratulations to all Leaving Certificate students who are receiving their results today (Wednesday).
‘Receiving your Leaving Cert results marks the end of one chapter in people’s lives, as often it is their last connection to second level education, but it also marks the opening of a new and exciting chapter in the lives of many young people.
‘I would like to congratulate each and every one of the 56,696 students who sat this year’s Leaving Certificate. Whatever result you achieved, there are opportunities there for you to pursue. Some will choose to attend college, others will choose an apprenticeship, while others will begin a search for work and explore the careers that are open to them.
‘I think particular congratulations must be extended to the several hundred students who returned to education and sat their Leaving Certificate through the VTOS scheme. Going back to education requires commitment and dedication and their efforts are particularly admirable.
‘For those who choose third level, there are a wide range of opportunities available, including higher and further education. I would urge people to take time and consider their options carefully so that they choose a course and a career path that they will enjoy.
