The Annette Halpin Memorial Music Award aims to support music education, music development and performance opportunities for young musicians, composers and singers living in South Dublin County Council's Administrative Area. The bursary may be used to cover the costs of a range of development opportunities including – but not limited to – master classes, purchase of instruments, recording or travel.
