This year’s award presentation took place at the Trees to Treasures Exhibition at Farmleigh House in Phoenix Park, Dublin.
Trees to Treasures is an exhibition showcasing excellence and innovation in furniture design, manufacture, technology and education by students, staff and graduates of ATU Connemara.
Having completed four years at ATU’s Furniture Design & Manufacturing programme, Neil is now beginning a Masters in Design Innovation at Maynooth University.
Asked what it means to win the award, he said: “To win the Conor Farrell Design Award, it’s a big deal for me, to recognise my design, it’s a very proud moment. Accolades such as this, supporting the work I’m doing, it’s very encouraging.”
