Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh student to deliver TED-Ed Club

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh student to deliver TED-Ed Club presentation in Mansion House to mark 100th anniversary of First Dáil


Megan Ní Laighin, Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh, Limerick

Topic: Why alcohol is a danger to our society

Fifteen students who were selected in a nationwide competition will deliver TED-Ed Club presentations at the Mansion House on Tuesday, January 22, as part of the Houses of the Oireachtas programme commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First Dáil.

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh is delighted that one of its Fifth Year pupils, Megan Ní Laighin, has been selected for this special occasion.

The students, all aged 16 to 17, have spent many hours preparing their presentations as part of 13 TED-Ed Club lessons, formally known as explorations, under the guidance of their teachers and Parliamentary Education Officer Conor Reale.

The presentations begin at 1 p.m. in the Round Room of the Mansion House, the venue for the first public sitting of Dáil Éireann on 21 January 1919.

Following the event, the students’ presentations will be available for viewing on the TED-Ed Clubs channel on YouTube and on Oireachtas TV.

Their chosen topics include the power of democracy, the impact of social media and mobile phones, challenges in mental health services, coping with stress, sexual identity, and the relevance of education in the real world. Two speakers will make their presentations in Irish.

“The calibre of the students’ presentations is simply outstanding and will be inspiring to all those who hear them. These are brave, empathetic, intelligent and insightful young people with powerful messages,” said Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl TD. “There can be no better way to commemorate the first hundred years of Dáil Éireann than to highlight voices of future leadership in our country as these students surely represent.”

An Scoil Nua

We are delighted to see demolition work has commenced on the site of our new future campus on Clare Street.

Kelly Bros. moved heavy demolition equipment onto the site this morning and several of the smaller buildings have been dismantled already.

We are looking forward to seeing the progress over the next four weeks when demolition is expected to be completed.

It is also highly admirable and commendable that the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board (LCETB) is developing a large post primary school at this city centre location.
