Meet the students looking to revolutionise cycle safety

A device that projects a temporary cycle lane to warn road users of the space they need to leave for cyclists is vying to win an entrepreneur award run by the State’s network of local enterprise offices.


04 2018: Desmond College in the Irish Times

Cycle Safe 2000, which is competing in the senior category, is a project from Breda Magner (16), Evan Condon (16) and E’ueonn Ferron (16) from Desmond College, Newcastle West, Co Limerick.

The product the students have developed involves a device that attaches to a saddle and projects a temporary bicycle lane at the back of a moving bicycle to alert approaching vehicles.

French CSI Competition 2018

April 9, 2018

Students from Desmond College were amazed to find a crime scene on Monday following a weekend teacher training course!!! Easter Eggs belonging to students were all eaten and the wrappers left behind! Students spent the week solving the mystery as part of their French classes- all clues were written in French, clues were left around the school ( but all in French!). They had to carry out interviews using their French language skills. It was a fun filled and exciting week for all involved – and the CSI crime was solved!!!
