I know I’m a bit late in offering my congratulations, but I wanted to make sure that those of you who hadn’t heard by now that Ireland had 2 finalists in the Imagine Cup 2008 competition found out.
I had written about the Park IT Team from Sligo IT on April 11th. They made the trip to Paris and represented Ireland in the Software Design category. While they didn’t win, they deserve a huge congratulations on their unique and innovative solution.
Well done to to the whole Part IT Team
The 2nd entry from Ireland was the Acid Rain Team from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. They took 2nd place overall worldwide in the Embedded Development category. An unbelievable accomplishment considering the level of competition.

I look forward to seeing the Northern Ireland entries for next year’s competition.
