Representatives from Google, Amazon and Bank of America were also in attendance for the presentations, as were a number of South Dublin County councillors.
Ms O’Neill added: “The group had a tour of the Dáil and even had a chance to sit in on a live session and observe the Taoiseach taking questions from his colleagues.
“One of the young people decided ‘I’m going to be the first female Taoiseach!’. Moments like these are at the heart of our programme.
“Our aim is to expose young people to the very real possibilities and choices they can make to engage in their careers and life success.
“We want to offer a huge thanks to Bank of America and Google, without whom this event wouldn’t have been possible.
“Huge thanks to everyone who attended, and well done to these incredible young people!”
