Pre­sen­ta­tion en­trepreneurs hope to dou­ble on the camán’s suc­cess

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

PRE­SEN­TA­TION Castleis­land held its an­nual Stu­dent En­ter­prise School Fi­nal and Christ­mas Carol Ser­vice in St John’s Hall just be­fore Christ­mas.

On the day, 11 first year en­ter­prises were on dis­play and one sec­ond year en­ter­prise.

“A to­tal of 45 students took part in this year’s pro­gramme, and two prizes in the first year cat­e­gory and one in the sec­ond year were up for de­ci­sion,” said or­gan­iser and teacher Pierce Dar­gan.

“These three groups will now go on to rep­re­sent the school at the county fi­nal of the Kerry Stu­dent En­ter­prise in IT Tralee in March.

“The two first-year groups are as fol­lows: ‘Eary­fix’ with their all-in-one ear­piece that has a pen/pen­cil clip and an ear plug at­tach­ment for builders, de­signed by Emma Keane, Katie Wal­she, Ciara Cahill.

“The ‘75 Degrees of Safety’, with their me­tal lad­der, shows that a lad­der is at the safest an­gle of 75 degrees, and this was de­signed by Lau­ren O’Con­nor, Aoife O’Leary, Sarah Ma­son, Blait­naid Casey and Aine Mur­phy.

“The sec­ond-year group won its way through with its ‘Crios Mhadra’ – the car safety har­ness for dogs by Kelly Anne Nix and Kate­lyn Curtin.

“Mar­garet Mur­phy from the Local En­ter­prise Of­fice, along with Lisa Henchy, Bank of Ire­land man­ager, Castleis­land; and Kerry se­nior foot­baller, Shane En­right, were in at­ten­dance.

“The Bank of Ire­land kindly spon­sored all tro­phies on the day. The girls are hop­ing to re­tain their county ti­tle and go on to hope­fully have a shot at re­tain­ing the All-Ire­land ti­tle of last year, won by the ‘Com­plete Camán’ group,” said Mr Dar­gan – who led last year’s group to All-Ire­land suc­cess.

Pre­par­ing for the next build­ing boom with their ‘Eary­Fix’ solution. Prize win­ners: Emma Keane, Katie Walsh and Ciara Cahill with their award-win­ning prod­uct.
