There are estimated to be around 23,000 exceptionally gifted children in Ireland today and this level of intelligence has to be cause for optimism.

There is a growing concern that these gifted children can be somewhat overlooked in ordinary schooling systems.

A new programme on RTE called 'Bright Young Things: Growing Up Gifted' follows the stories of some of these children in the top 5pc of academic achievement in Ireland.
