This year, 550 projects were shortlisted from 2091 entries and 5 projects qualified from the school, representing a very significant success for the students involved. The qualified projects for this year were “What Olympic sport is most suitable for me ?”, researched by Jennifer Linehan, Fionnain Buckley, and Grace O'Connor; “The correlation between success in an Olympic sport and participation in that sport following the Olympics”, conducted by Katie Hickey, Robyn O'Riordan-Sheehan and Elmarie Kelleher;  “Epileptic or Drunk? An awareness campaign to highlight symptoms of epilepsy”, by Ciara Fitzgerald, Katie Crowley and Emma Kelleher;  ‘A statistical investigation into the sodium chloride content of ration’, by Eibhlis Kelleher, Nora O'Sullivan and Gary O'Donovan; “What are the ideal weather conditions for high scoring in GAA?” researched by Neil Flahive, Aidan Murphy and Jack Ducey. The assistance provided by Millstreet Community Council to students who qualified for the finals in Dublin over the past number of years is much appreciated.
