Celebrating Excellence: Holmes O’Malley Sexton UL Law Scholarship 2024

At Holmes O’Malley Sexton LLP, we believe in investing in the future by supporting bright minds who demonstrate exceptional academic performance and potential. This year, we are thrilled to announce that the prestigious Holmes O’Malley Sexton UL Law Scholarship has been awarded to Brian Daly, an outstanding student from Kilmallock, Co. Limerick.

Recognising Academic Brilliance

Brian Daly, a high-achieving Law and Accounting student at the University of Limerick (UL), has been honoured with this scholarship in recognition of his remarkable academic achievements. Brian's dedication and hard work have set him apart, and we are proud to support his journey towards a promising career in law.

This is not the first time Brian has been recognised for his academic excellence. In 2021, he received the same scholarship during his first year of college, and his continued commitment to his studies has once again earned him this distinguished accolade. Reflecting on this achievement, Brian expressed his gratitude:

"I’m delighted to have achieved the results to merit the honour of this scholarship. This financial support is really encouraging as I continue my studies and I’m very grateful to Holmes O’Malley Sexton LLP for the recognition."
