An Irish language debating competition open to anyone under 30 will be held as part of the Sinn Féin Ard Fheis in Wexford Opera House on the 8th of February. First prize for the event will be €500.
The annual competition, which aims to promote the use of our national language among young people, was the brainchild of EU candidate Liath Ní Riada, a former director at TG4.
Participants are invited to prepare a speech up to five minutes long on a topic of their choice. Their performance will then be judged by a celebrity panel.
Anyone interested in taking part is asked to email Donnchadh O’ Laoghaire at firstname.lastname@example.org. The competition will be held at 4pm on Saturday the 8th in the Creane room at the Opera House.
