Two Portlaoise College TY students, Lee Carroll-Talbot and Byron Sage-McGuirk, accepted an invitation from the University of Limerick to present a project.
The invite came specifically from the Physical Education and Sports Science (PESS) department.
The lads were asked to present their project on “Does heading the football effect reaction speed and memory?”.
Lee and Byron have been researching this all through transition year.
The shoe was very firmly on the other foot as the lads were asked questions and under the spotlight.
When the work was over they had the opportunity to tour the facilities in the department and listen to some of the staff speak about their areas of expertise and some of the third level students speak about their experiences in the University of Limerick.
What a fantastic experience for the two lads.
