Our Throwback Thursday Trip down Memory Lane this week takes us back to May 1989.

The courage, dedication and enthusiasm of 74 County Tipperary young people who received Gaisce President's Awards in Kilkenny Castle was praised by President Patrick Hillery, who presented thm with medals.

He told the award winners that they had more than amply demonstrated their capabilities and fully deserved the recognition being afforded to them for their "wonderful achievements."

Among the recipients that evening, all of 32 years ago now, were a group from the Presentation Convent in Cashel.
