Testimonial from Shane Burke – Dungarvan CBS who won the 17 and over Regional competition in 2022: “I’m extremely delighted, I was not expecting it at all, and what was even better was the whole class erupted with applause. I would just like to thank the organisers of this competition for running it and giving us this opportunity.” His teacher Patrick O’Dwyer commented “It was a fantastic opportunity for the boys to even enter. Well done to everyone who participated. Morale is high flying here in Dungarvan”.
