We would like to congratulate our event manager Niall Seymour on winning the regional round of Intel's Ideation Camp in Skibbereen Credit Union on Monday 15th April 2013.

Intel's Ideation Camp is a competition where groups of six people must come with a product to improve cyber saftey and pitch it to a panel of judges. The winner of the national final will go on an all expense paid trip to Intel's headquaters in California. The competition was run by Skibbereen's Lion's Club

Niall's team created "CyberBuddy", a helpful icon in the shape of a piglet that supports you with valuable information when you are being cyberbullied.

Congratulations Niall, we wish you the best of luck in competition!
