Young Scientist trio sow seeds of success with bacteria 'brainwave'

A TRIO of young friends clutched hands in disbelief as they learnt that their project, sparked by a mundane discovery in the garden, had landed them the prestigious BT Young Scientist of the Year award.

With tears rolling down their cheeks, the 15-year-old third year students from Kinsale Community School, Co Cork, said they had given up hope of winning just before their names were called.

"I just can't believe it," Emer Hickey uttered, as she clutched the hands of her teammates and best friends Ciara Judge and Sophie Healy-Throw.

"We had started giving up," said Sophie, adding how the clock ticked by as the judges called the lengthy list of winners.
