Posted on 27/10/2017, Author: duivenkrant@hotmail.com

A County Down teenager  has won a prestigious scholarship from Apple for designing an app to help pigeon racers.

Jack Delaney, from Dromore, designed an app to help pigeon racers work out what speed their birds are travelling at and how long it may take them to compete.

It is used thousands of times a week and was spotted by the bosses at Apple. 

Fourteen-year-old Jack was flown to Silicon Valley in the summer where he attended talks by Apple CEO Tim Cook and former First Lady Michelle Obama. 

"I was one of 350 scholarship recipients who were picked to go to the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California," he said.
