We would like to thank all our members who assisted at and visited our stand at this years Rose Festival in Saint Anne's Park. Also a special thanks to Joan Sharkey for leading our Heritage Week Event around the follies in Saint Anne's Park and for all those who assisted. Hope you can join us at either our meetings or talks over the coming months. New members always welcome.
Congratulations to Paul Clarke, who is a student at St. Paul's College Raheny on winning this Years BT Young Scientist of the Year Award. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Young Scientist competition and the biggest yet and the judges said it was the highest standard to date. Paul's project on “Contributions to cyclic graph theory” really impressed the judges and is a major contribution to the world of mathematics. Congratulations to St Paul's College and teacher Dr. Brian Smyth. Congratulations also to Paul's proud parents. Paul's father Des is a member of the Raheny Heritage Society.
