A Carlow councillor has tweeted about his Leaving Cert experience to reassure local students that the State exam is "a blip in the memory".

In a post on social media, Cllr Brian O'Donoghue said: "I got 315 points. Cried.

"Drove to Cork to show my dad who was undergoing treatment for leukaemia. Ended up doing a course in Carlow that I didn’t know existed. Made friends for life.
