There was celebrations at Coláiste Mhuire, Mullingar this week as three students celebrated receiving prizes at the finals of the 56th BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in the RDS, Dublin last Friday. 

Sixth year student Ruairi Fagan took second place in the Technology Senior Individual category for his project CommunicAID: A mobile application to assist in the virtualisation of the medical sector and streamlining of patient specialist relations.

“It aims to improve communication between patients and doctors and provides a number of tools to simplify patients day-to-day lives. I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2015 so that was one of the main driving factors – my own experience with waiting list times. It’s also a lot more relevant in recent times with Covid-19 and the increased demand to move online.” he explained to Topic.
