The 8th annual All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) competition final was held at Trinity College Dublin on March 15th.

100 students from 51 schools raced to solve linguistic problems and decipher numerical spy codes in the quest to become Ireland’s top young problem solver.

The students now await the announcement of the national final results next week when four students will be selected to represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad in India in July 2016.

Representing Donegal were Patrick Curran, Dónal Farren and Pauraic Neely from St Eunan’s Letterkenny, and Jack Richards from PCC Falcarragh (pictured here).
