Mathew Cullen: Ace attacker is an ace inventor!!!

We want to wish Matt Cullen our star U16 and minor full forward and member of the county U16 panel as he goes for the All Ireland Junior Innovator of the year award on April 18th in Dublin.

Matt has invented an wireless earpiece to work with the whip that jockeys use when racing. The Eqwhip as it is called has now been patented throughout the world and has won both the Mayo and Connacht award. The St.Muredachs college pupil has developed it as a personal school project.

Speaking to Matt during the week after he had given a great display for the minors on Tuesday night he was hopeful but modestly did not tell me about all the calls he has been taking over the last few weeks about his invention. With the new BHA rules in the UK the invention will tell jockeys how many times they have used the whip in the race thus helping the jockeys avoid a visit to the stewards office. No doubt Ruby Walsh and Barry Gerathy will be onto Matt in the next few weeks looking to test his invention.

Congrat Matt and good luck next week in the All Ireland.
