A TEAM from University of Limerick were crowned champions at Games Fleadh 2015 which was held in LIT Thurles this week.

The team comprising First Year Games Design students Patrick Foskin, Oliver Gavin, Johnathon Lloyd and Clem O’Donnell defeated a team from neighbouring LIT to claim the Robocode Championship.

Ireland’s growing status as a location for digital games research and development was further highlighted this week when three of the biggest names in the industry participated in Games Fleadh.

LIT Tipperary, whose alumni have worked on some of gaming’s biggest titles including Call of Duty, StarCraft and Guitar Hero, hosted Ireland’s largest gaming event.
