The Strokestown students were honoured in Portlaoise earlier this week for their incredible fundraiser.

Three Strokestown teenagers who raised over €64,000 for charity were honoured at this year's Garda National Youth Awards.

Andrew Jordan, Jack Beirne and Mark Rogers restored a 1956 Ferguson 20 tractor and raffled it in aid of Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland.

The Scoil Mhuire students received their national award at a ceremony in Portlaoise which celebrated outstanding young people who actively contributed to their communities.
