The Irish Technological Teachers Association shortlisted entries to 30 projects, the winner attends a school in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary and we are all delighted with this tremendous success. Nationally, in excess of 16,000 candidates sat the Materials Technology Wood Junior Certificate examinations which gives an appreciation and context to the significance of the award – comhghairdeas le Seán agus lena mhúinteoir, Turlough.
