12-year old Max O’Farrell from CulmullenDrumree Co. Meath, has ambitions to go to university, but is devastated at the prospect of not even getting a place in secondary school next September. 

The O’Farrell family have found themselves in a situation where Max is falling through the cracks, because their home is outside the catchment area of any secondary school, and he didn’t attend a feeder school, as he has been finishing his primary education in Castleknock, from where the family moved a few years ago.
