The trio of students from Ardscoil Rís each scored maximum points of 625 points in the Leaving Certificate 2018.

They are Eoin Corcoran, Ronan Connolly and Michael O’Callaghan.

Principal Tom Prendergast said: “We had a lot of happy faces this morning when the class of 2018 were collecting their results, thankfully.”

Some 2,495 students, made up of 1,241 young women and 1,254 young men, sat their Leaving Certificate exams in Limerick this year, according to the State Examinations Commission.

A further 97 young women and 105 young men completed the Leaving Certificate Applied programme in Limerick in 2018, according to the figures. 

Exam results were available from 9am this morning, with students also able to access their results online from noon this Wednesday.  

A helpline facility will be operating from August 15 to provide information and advice to students and parents at results time.
