FebruARY 2024

NEWS

2024 got off to a flying start with our first event of the year. Delegates from Ireland, Scotland, and Northern Ireland managed to dodge the storms for three days of debate, discussion, papers, speakers and team work.

On the final evening, Áine Ryan from the Office of the Planning Regulator took the Ireland Young Thinker of the Year title for her paper on autism, and Rachel McCulloch from Forestry and Land Scotland won the Scotland and Northern Ireland Young Thinker of the Year title on the rarely tackled subject of death. The runners-up respectively were Karl Smith, Fingal County Council, and Anna Campbell, Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

The winning group in the Group Challenge were David Hamilton, Northern Ireland Social Care Council; Jaynie Ireland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise; Ciaran Rafter, Houses of the Oireachtas Service; Ailbhe Rooney, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions; Áine Ryan, Office of the Planning Regulator.
