Over 500 second level students from all over North Cork, including three schools from Fermoy, were put through their paces earlier this week on on Monday 26th at a special student and teacher brainstorming day, held at the Charleville Park Hotel.

The event is part of the North Cork Schools Enterprise Programme, which encourages students to set up and run a business over the course of the academic year to help them learn all about entrepreneurship.
