About the Bursary

The Eimear Noonan Music Bursary Award was established by the Noonan family of Caher, Co. Clare in memory of their daughter and sister Eimear, an avid and inspirational young musician, who died tragically in France in November 2017.


The Bursary Award is funded from the proceeds of a memorial concert held in Gort in November 2018. Performing on the night were Eimear's musical associates spanning the classical and trad. genres, including Coole Music Youth Orchestra, UCC Orchestra, GCS Choir and ensemble and a group of Eimear's close trad music friends. Additional funds were gratefully received from the Scariff RFC Robbie Madden Fundraiser, private donors and from the proceeds of the 2019 Carpe Diem concert held in association with Coole Music and Gort Community School.

Congratulations to the 2019 winners of the Bursary: 

Grace Campbell from Co. Galway and Crea O'Sullivan from Co. Clare!
