BALLYMONEY girl Abigail Reilly, 21 was the top plumbing apprentice at the Northern Regional College's (NRC) annual intercampus competition hosted by the college in partnership with SkillbuildNI.
Abigail, who studies at NRC's Trostan Ave campus in Ballymena, was the only female apprentice across all disciplines to take part in the intercampus skills competition, apprenticed to national mechanical, electrical and specialist contractor, Dowd's Group.
Plumbing lecturer, James McKeefry, said he hoped that Abigail's success would inspire other young women. He said, "On behalf of the Plumbing team, I'd like to congratulate Abigail on winning first place in the intercampus Skillbuild competition. We are all very proud of what she has achieved.
“Her commitment to her studies and hard work whilst practising in the workshop is a motivation to her fellow students."
He continued, "Abigail set the bar very high with a flawless judges' score on her Skillbuild assessment.
“This achievement should be an inspiration to females who wish to enter into this male dominated industry and there are many opportunities for young women in this Technical profession.
