David Glynn (18) from Maryland, Castlebar arrived at St Gerald’s College to find he achieved an A1 in an incredible nine subjects. David scored A1s in Maths, English, Irish, Applied Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Music, French and Japanese. David only started learning Japanese last September and only committed to doing it for the Leaving Cert last December.
David has prodigious talents in Maths and Science and was twice in the Young Scientist of the Year, once with a project on water divining and secondly with an entry concerning the development of children telling lies. He has spent two stints at the Centre for Talented Youth at Dublin City University. He will go on to study Maths at Trinity College in Dublin.
Five other St Gerald’s College students who got 600 points or above were celebrated also. They were: Conor Murray, Barry Lawless, Cian Ruane, Ammar Janjua and Martin Gallagher. These examples show that Mayo has a highly educated, young, and vibrant demographic which in the future would be a very appealing reason for Companies to locate here.Tags: Castlebar, Leaving Cert, Mayo, Mayo students
