Student debate as gaelige for Sinn Féin ard fheis

27 March, 2013


A debate as gaelige for third level students will feature at the Sinn Féin ard fheis in Castlebar, Co Mayo in two weeks time.

“It is really about giving students the opportunity to have their say about the difficulties and challenges they face in these tough times,” said Liadh Ní Riada the Gaeilge development officer for the party.

She added that the event was attracting great interest already. “It follows on the victory of the Óige Poblachta (Sinn Féin Republican Youth) at the UCD Mock Dáil in recent weeks when UCD politics lecturers judged them better debaters than Young Fine Gael, Ógra Fianna Fáil and Labour Youth.”

“This debate however, comes with a cash prizes sponsored by Foras na Gaeilge and Gael Linn. The debate will be chaired by TG4 presenter Páidí O Lionaird and will be live-streamed on the Sinn Féin website.
It takes place in the Harlequin Hotel in Castlebar, Co. Mayo on Friday 12 April 2013 at 2pm.

Registration is free and anyone interested in participating should contact Liadh Ní Riada @ [email protected]
