Carthy impressed by high standards at BT Young Scientists as Monaghan and Cavan students shine

Sinn Fein’s Matt Carthy was in attendance at the 2020 BT Young Scientists Exhibition in Dublin’s RDS on Thursday last. The Midlands Northwest MEP had high praise for the students who took park.

“These brilliant young minds will shape the Island of Ireland in years to come. Some of the ideas, studies and inventions were incredible. It was an honour to meet so many of Ireland’s brightest students. Our future really is in good hands”

Having perused hundreds of stalls Carthy met in person with many students from Schools across the the country. “It’s inspiring to meet so many confident young people with such progressive ideas. I really enjoyed chatting to the students and their teachers and I wholeheartedly congratulate them on what really was a brilliant event.”

Carthy reserved particular praise for students from the Monaghan, Cavan and Meath areas. “I was delighted to see my homelands so well represented. I saw lots of familiar faces from Schools in Carrickmacross, Castleblayney, Clones, Monaghan, Kingscourt, Bawnboy, Cavan, Kells and Navan. These students, their parents and their teachers deserve great praise.”

The Young Scientist Exhibition has been growing from strength to strength since it’s inception in 1965 with the 2020 edition again attracting record numbers. ENDS
