Patrick D’Arcy – European Champion

We are delighted to announce and formally congratulate Patrick D’Arcy from Castlepollard Community College on winning the Youth Start European Entrepreneurship Award for his invention – The Wide Awake!

After overcoming the tough challenges at Regional and National level, Patrick took part in the event at a European Level last week. The Youth Start European Enterprise Awards should have taken place in Vienna this year but Patrick had to compete remotely.

In keeping with his achievements so far with this invention, Patrick took the gold in the “Idea Challenge” category, defeating inventions from all over Europe.
We look forward to seeing his progress at the World Event which will take place in Berlin over the coming months.
