There is nothing wrong with a bit of friendly competition, especially when the end result is a shared victory. On Leaving Certificate Results Day, in a sense everyone is a winner as everyone gets that piece of paper which serves as a key in unlocking their future. Obviously, there is always a range of results and myriad paths forward. We congratulate all of the Class of 2018 for working to the best of their abilities and responding so well to the guidance of their teachers. We particularly congratulate the three young men pictured, who each managed to garnish 589 points and top the class. Conor Power, David Loftus and Simon Pettitt will all be heading where they want to go come September, as will the rest of our recent graduates and we wish them all well at university and beyond. Stay tuned as we await news of offers and acceptances and a more detailed breakdown of results.
