"I am delighted that the Clare Lifelong Learning Network has been selected as one of the best examples of excellence and innovation across the public service", stated Minister Killeen.

"The Public Service Excellence Awards are presented every two years and recognise commitment, creativity and innovation behind important projects that add value to public services used by citizens. I feel that the VEC’s Clare Lifelong Learning Network is thoroughly deserving of this award due its promotion of lifelong learning in the county. This award acknowledges the supporting role played by the Network in getting learners and learning providers to work together", concluded the Minister.
