A South Mayo student was among the prize winners at the annual National Scratch Coding Competition, organised by Lero, the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Software and the Irish Computer Society.

The annual competition, now in its 14th year, allows Ireland’s best young coders from primary and post-primary schools to present their project to the competition judges.

Niall McNamara from Taugheen National School was a category winner for his game, Balloon Popper, which allowed players to burst balloons using an arrow.

Holly Wright, a fifth-year student of Bremore Educate Together Secondary School Balbriggan, County Dublin was the overall winner at the national finals.
