Months of hard work and a timely business idea paid off for a group of first year students from Scoil Pol, Kilfinane recently as they came home with a runner-up prize from the Student Enterprise Awards in Limerick. The awards are run by the Limerick County Enterprise Board and the first years would have been entered in the junior category at the awards ceremony, held in The South Court Hotel in Raheen.

The students came up with the idea of planting and growing shamrock, giving their business the clever name of 'Seam-Rogues' and with the awards coinciding nicely the week before St Patrick's Day, the business concept was very appropriate.


Their business teacher, Gina Clifford said that they have been working on the project since November, doing things like marketing, sales and advertising through Facebook and posters, while they also sold the product to local shops. She added that it gave them a real interest in enterprise and it also puts the business ideas that they learn in class into practice. She concluded by saying that it let them put what they know about business to the test. Well done to all concerned.
