Gorey twins land the same points
TWINS Laura and Niall Whitty received their results together, and they opened them together, and couldn't believe it when they achieved the exact same points.
As they celebrated at Gorey Community School last Wednesday morning, Laura laughed that she initially calculated her points wrong, but when she rechecked, she couldn't believe that she and her brother both achieved 455 points.
'I thought I'd do worse,' said Niall, adding that their parents couldn't believe it when they were told, and they even got them to calculate it again.
The twins were in different classes for all subjects except Maths and French. Though their points matched, they got different results in the various subjects.
Niall plans to go to Gorey School of Art in September, while Laura wants to study Business in Dublin.
