The Irish Junior Mini Sumo Robot Tournament held on April 4, 2014, in The Radisson Hotel, Galway was a great success.

This event was  organised by Galway Education Centre, Robotics Ireland Science Foundation Ireland and PDST. 

After the huge success of last 2013’s event, Robotics Ireland in conjunction with the Galway Education Centre and PDST increased the number of participating robots and subsequently held the competition in Radisson Hotel.

They also brought on board one of the UK’s most successful MCs Paul Sleem to compare the event on the day. This year the organisers introduced another aspect to the day: RoboVid Competition.
