President Higgins was impressed with the high standard of skill and craft on exhibit, from Building Information Modelling and visual merchandising, to cloud computing and carpentry.
He said, “The Ireland Skills Live event is a very important exhibition. It concentrates on most valuable skills, that some of the very best people who are thinking about how one can express one’s creativity in the most useful possible way, can use in any part of the world.
At the exhibition I met some of the most dedicated teachers, while all of the institutes here are doing far-seeing, future-oriented work. I don’t mind saying, I would love to see all parents bring their young people here. I believe that this exhibition will in time be as important as the Young Scientist Exhibition.”
