Bray People - - News - Mary FOG­A­RTY

THE PEO­PLE have cast their votes and Grey­stones boy, Adam Sta­ple­ton, who is a 2nd year pupil at Pres Bray, will find out soon if he is in with the chance of hav­ing his doo­dle dis­played on Google’s home­page on St. Pa­trick’s Day.

He is also in the run­ning for a new lap­top and €10,000 for his school. Vot­ing closed to the pub­lic yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Adam was the win­ner of his cat­e­gory in ‘doo­dle4­google,’ in Wick­low and mem­bers of the pub­lic have been vot­ing on­line for an over­all win­ner. The task was to de­sign a google logo us­ing the theme ‘my Ire­land’.

‘My Ire­land to me is all about com­bin­ing the world views and cul­tural views of Ire­land,’ said Adam. ‘ They are rep­re­sented in the lep­rechaun and the sham­rock, which have long been sym­bols of the Ir­ish.’ Adam’s im­age also in­cludes a Celtic il­lu­mi­nated ‘e’ and a crook to sym­bol­ise the cul­tural back­ground of the coun­try.

103 county win­ners have been pit­ted against one an­other for the pub­lic vote which will help them go through to the next round of the com­pe­ti­tion. Four fi­nal­ists will be se­lected with the help of the on­line vote. One of the four will be cho­sen as the over­all win­ner by Google’s De­nis Hwang.

The winning doo­dle will be seen by mil­lions of peo­ple when it ap­pears on the home­page here in Ire­land, the UK, Aus­tralia, Canada and the US on St. Pa­trick’s day.
