It wasn't that far..
I'm back from The Games Fleadh in Tipperary, where I was lucky enough to be a judge in one of the games categories, and hand out a rather nice cup. It's always hard to pick just one winning team when everyone had worked so hard, but that's the way it goes.
Fantastic to see the next generation of games programmers using XNA on Xboxes. When I was their age I was writing games on ZX81's and ZXSpectrums, so I was delighted to see the tradition continue.
Here's the winning team from Lucan Community College.
