8 A1s for leaving Cert student from Urlingford

A leaving Cert Student from Kilkenny got eight A1s today.

Matthew Kavanagh from Urlingford says he was shocked when he picked up his results from his school, Cistercian College Roscrea, this morning.

Only one person in the whole county did better, which means he’s tied second place in the county, and in the top 13 results nationwide.

Matthew says he’s been inspired by his mother, who’s a nurse, to do medicine and he’s expecting to be offered his first choice in UCC.
