Kate won for her Business, Kate Cater Make-up. What is unusual about this entry is the fact that she has the business up and running and it is proving very successful.
Joseph O’Connor and Jamie Pim, (Joint runners-up) came up with the idea of a café on the Wicklow way route between Marley Park and Knockree Hostel. Jamie lives very close to a section of the walk and saw the possibility of setting up a café. He has been encouraged to start it this summer.
Caitlin Grant, also joint runner-up came up with a business idea called ‘Reboot Camp’. The idea is to have an outdoor activities camp for 16/17/18 year olds over the summer holidays. She did a tremendous amount of work for the project.
Special thanks must go to Philip Robinson for judging the competition once again this year. He met all groups over 10 hours and put them all through their paces. Also a special mention to Eileen Corcoran, who is retiring this year from Wesley College. She has a huge amount of work as Head of Department and teacher. We all wish her the very best in the future.
