ROC Protection

TY students Ross Byrne, Carl Cullen and Cormac Spain from Clonkeen College in Blackrock were certainly bitten by the entrepreneurial bug in 16/17 when, for their student enterprise project, they decided to develop a protective base layer protective for GAA players. The base layer is designed to provide protection to players from the impact of hurleys and sliotars.

Since wining the Student Enterprise National Award in the senior category in May 2017, the boys are going from strength to strength with their business. They have already appeared twice on RTE’s Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy.

They have also diversified their product range to include the ‘ROC Soc’.
