List of elite sporting talent

At the beginning of January,  put out a call on their social media channels for nominations for the Irish secondary schools that have the best track record in manufacturing elite sporting talent since the year 2000. They were flooded with nominations, and after parsing an incredibly competitive list, they produced a  list of Ireland's top 10 secondary schools for producing sporting talent.  This list can be viewed here.
