Ireland has just won two bronze medals at the International Economics Olympiad 2019 held in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Ireland went head to head with 24 other countries in this prestigious Economic event and two Irish students, James Collins and Alex O’Connor achieved bronze medals following four days of intensive testing in Economics.
Both students have now been awarded prestigious Economics Scholarships to attend the Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg due to their performance at this global event.
What an honour it was to advise this team throughout the competition. Thank you so much to EOI Ireland for appointing me to this hugely rewarding position. It has been a privilege from start to finish.
Thank you also to the very many sponsors and schools who helped make this little piece of history occur.
