We are a TY Mini-Business called Hurlr based at Heywood Community School in Ballinakill, Co.Laois. This year we took part in the Student Enterprise Programme and were tasked with coming up with an innovative business idea. We decided to create a solution to a common problem faced, not only by ourselves, but also by many young people across Ireland. Our novel idea was to create a hurley holder for a bicycle to make travelling with a hurl easier and far safer. Our hurley holder is one of a kind. We have designed and produced it from scratch in our workshop. ( Daniel Aylward, Donil Mathew and Evan Farrell )
