A KILLORGLIN student who scored the highest accountancy marks in the country in last year's Leaving Cert has been honoured by the Irish Banking Federation and the Irish Business Studies Teachers Association.
Jamie Hannon, a former student of Killorglin's Intermediate School, was awarded a gold medal at the Business Studies Achievement Awards after he recorded the highest mark in the country in the 2013 Leaving Certificate Accounting exam. The awards recognise the achievements of students in Accounting, Economics and Business.
Jamie was presented with his medal by IBF President David Duffy at a ceremony hosted by the Irish Banking Federation in Dublin last week.
The young accountancy expert is currently studying Computers and Science at University College Cork and says he is interested in pursuing a career in computer programming and gaming when he finishes college.
