Molly Meleady-Hanley has won a Scholarship to one of the UK’s top Boarding and Day Schools – Mount St Mary’s College, in recognition of her all round sporting, academic and creative achievements and potentials.

Molly was picked as one of the top 10 multi-talented Irish children to watch out for in the future, and has had another triumphant year in Athletics, coming first Under 11 and first Under 12 in every race she competed in during this year’s Athletics Season.

Molly is coached by Brian Adams – Olympian and Team GB Coach – and is coached for endurance by John Dowling, the Long Distance Multiple World Record Holder, who said of her, “Molly is an exceptional talent and greatly deserves all she has achieved, as she gives of herself 200% in everything she does and does so, not in any harsh competitive way, but in pursuit of merely doing the very best she can, in line with the Mylnhurst School motto.  She is a warm hearted child and great fun to be with and is very popular on the national and international circuits.  She is a credit to her school and to the Hallam Diocese.
