Herbert also recently competed in the 37th Irish Mathematical Olympiad (IrMO) at the end of January, finishing in tenth place, once again earning him a spot in the national training squad.

Laurence was one of only 63 who achieved above 84% and was awarded a trophy. He scored a hugely impressive 93%.
