We are delighted to be asked to participate and to help influence young people at an important stage in their lives,' said council chairman Cllr TONY Dempsey. Colaiste Abbain Principal Senan Lillis thanked both Wexford County Council and to Louise Casey, South East Regional Co-ordinator of the Schools for Business programme.
