Award winner photo competition
After our 2017 Awards Day, we set our Award winners a challenge to take a photograph of themselves doing something they love, featuring their AYM Award certificate. We had some great entries but our favourite was from Shenara. Well done Shenara!
I have always watched my sisters and brother perform Irish dancing. I come from a very traditional Irish musical background, where we all play a variety of different musical instruments. This year I was very privileged to be awarded such a beautiful 1880 French violin, which I had the fantastic opportunity of playing at the Annual Christmas Irish dancing school concert. My siblings also danced in this which was really special. Here we are in this photo before the concert.” Shenara
