This year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition saw the Bandon Grammar Science Department soar to new heights.

We had 4 entries of a very high standard.

All the groups were well received and two in particular received awards

Holly, Eabha and Emily were awarded second place in their category and Greg stole the show taking first place in his category. In addition to this Greg was awarded the Nokia Bell Labs award which is presented to the project that best highlights the benefits or issues of having a world where almost everyone and everything is connected. This award is open to all age groups and categories making it  a fantastic achievement for Greg.


Well done to all students and the Science Department on these fantastic achievements which are a rich reward for all the fantastic hard work that goes in every year.

Georgina Deane Receives Inaugural Paul Giblin Award

Well done to Georgina Deane on receiving the inaugural Paul Giblin Award.

Paul was one of the most successful oarsman to come from NUIG BC, with 19 national titles, multiple representations and medals at international level and two medals from the prestigious Henley Royal Regatta. Paul tragically passed away earlier this year after a long battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The award was set up in memory of Paul to support a developing athlete who displays the same characteristics and potential as Paul did when he first arrived at the club.

The Paul Giblin Award has both financial and ancillary supports. The recipient will receive a bursary of €2000 and support service from the NUIG Sports Unit, similar to those offered on the current NUIG scholarship. In the future the award may be conferred to an exceptional member of NUIGBC or to an exceptional athlete who intends to enrol at NUIG.

Georgina Deane was deemed to be the most suitable candidate for the award based on her achievements in her first year in the club. Georgina started in NUIG BC’s learn to row program in September 2016. Within two weeks she moved into the competitive program. From January 2017 she was a key member in all of the top racing crews and by July 2017 she had won national titles across three different grades. Georgina worked tirelessly on and off the water. She assisted in the organisation of the logistics for competitions, fund raising events, and the general running of the club. It was for her athletic ability and potential and for her character and commitment to the club that she was selected to receive the award.

Congratulations to Georgina from all at Bandon Grammar and we look forward to hearing of her future exploits on the water.

Darren Sweetnam International debut

BGS congratulates Darren on his first two caps for the senior Irish Rugby Team against South Africa and Fiji. Darren became our first past pupil to achieve this honour. His first full game against Fiji had a dream start with Darren scoring a super try in the 7th minute. He played really well in both games and we wish him every success for an exciting season ahead with Munster and Ireland.
