“There was an incredible strong performance that two pupils from the Antrim area had received the competition’s top marks,” Mr Hackett said.

He added: “It’s a great achievement; this competition is a marvellous way of getting young people interested in the Credit Union movement and we’re so impressed two members of our local community have done so well.”
