He's unstoppable

There's no stopping Banbridge schoolboy, Eoin Monaghan, who today will try to win cult television word and number game, Countdown, for the eighth successive time.

Such is his skill and confidence, it is difficult to believe that he is only 14 and is wiping the floor with adult rivals.

But it is all done in a self-effacing manner, without the slightest hint of arrogance.

As we have learned during the past week, he is also quite a sportsman, making him just the sort of son every parent would love to have. His own must be very proud of him and rightly so.
