Congratulations to Clifford Neale (Class of 2017) who received a Certificate of Distinction from the Engineering Technology Teachers Association (ETTA) at the National Finals held in Letterkenny on Saturday 18th November. A huge achievement to make the finals out of 5000 students that took the subject last year. Clifford qualified for the National finals by winning the Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford area finals of the ETTA. The Leaving Certificate project this year was based around the Sirosky Search and Rescue Helicopter. As part of the awards ceremony the coast guard arrived with the helicopter, which was great for all the award winners. Photographs shows Clifford with his certificate, Keith Kenna National Chairman ETTA and his teacher Mr Rossiter.
