Four students from St Gerald’s College, Castlebar, have lined up a meeting with the European Central Bank president Mario Draghi.
The young economists, Mark Balaski, James Hughes, Enda Mulchrone, and Mark Benson, were the national winners of the 2015 Generation €uro Students Awards.
The transition year students will now represent Ireland at the ECB next month where they will meet Mr Draghi and participate in a series of workshops and events with other winning teams from across the euro zone.
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny congratulated the team members and their teacher Regina Casey.
“I know the young men will travel to Frankfurt next month and I will personally ask ECB president Mario Draghi to keep an eye out for the team of sharp young minds from my own alma mater,” said Mr Kenny.
