AIPO - 2017 IOI TeamSaturday 22nd April - After an intense three days of competitive programming battles, four talented young men from around the country have been selected to represent Ireland at the prestigious 29th International Olympiad in Informatics this summer in Iran.

John Ryan (17yr - St. Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh, Thurles, Tipperary), Kieran Horgan (16yr - Davis College, Mallow, Co. Cork), Aidan Molloy (17yr - Bruce College, Montenotte, Cork) and Oisin O’Duibhir (16yr - Scoil Mhuire Agus Íde, Newcastle West, Limerick) were the top four students after the final Team Ireland qualification competition on Saturday. A total of eight students from the AIPO National Finals in February were invited to this Fidelity sponsored 3 day bootcamp on DCU campus for a mix of competitive programming training and IOI qualification contests.

With the public scoreboard keeping parents on the edge of their seats, there was a little as 3 points in the final contest between fourth and fifth position. But when the final solutions were submitted and the scoreboard revealed, Aidan Molloy to his delight had grabbed the final position. Team Ireland will fly out to Tehran on the 28th July for a week courtesy of Fidelity Investments and DCU, where they will join over 80 international teams from around the world on the trip of a lifetime.
