The news came just hours after the previous years’ BT Young Scientist & Technology competition’s winners Ciara Judge, Emer Hickey and Sophie Healy-Thow from Kinsale Community School were named the overall winners of the Grand Prize as well as the 15-16 Age category at the Google Science Fair.

Representing Ireland (north and south), Paul beat off intense competition from students throughout Europe, ranging in ages from 14-21 to win the award worth €5,000. Paul also won the CERN prize of a week’s visit to the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Paul Clarke from St Paul’s College, Raheny won the 2014 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition with his project entitled, ‘Contributions to cyclic graph theory.’ Paul’s project investigated and provided sufficient and necessary conditions for unsolved problems in the contemporary field of cyclic graph theory.

“ It is a true testament to the standard of entries and entrants to the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition that two winning projects have now received international acclaim in their respective fields,” observed BT Ireland chief executive Colm O’Neill.

“ These awards raise Ireland’s profile internationally, demonstrating our continued commitment to the critical subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths. Paul, Emer, Ciara & Sophie have done us all proud and we offer them our heartfelt congratulations.”
