UShield Enterprising Students

Four second year students of Colaiste Dun Iascaigh, Cahir as part of LEO Tipperary Student Enterprise Programme have with the guidance, support and encouragement of Business Teacher, Ms Harrahill and Student Enterprise co-ordinator Sue Anne O' Donnell have designed a unique sports glove which solves a problem for all players of hockey, rugby and football games. UShield© team members are all keen football players who are aware of the rules regarding compulsory wearing of gumshields and looked at possible solutions to prevent the loss of or damage to gumshields and so “UShield©” came about.

UShield is a custom designed sports glove in which players can safely hold their gumshield, on the way to and from the pitch and half time, which also ensures players gumshields are also kept clean.

The Boys are presenting their idea at the LEO Tipperary Student Enterprise Awards County Final in LIT on this Friday March 9TH, we wish them every success.
