    The Speech

    Is there a particular iconic speech that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end? This Saturday, three secondary school students will go head to head in a competition delivering their favourite famous speech. The Matheson Junior Debating National Mace – in which over 500 students took part this year – is a competition open to all junior cert students in Irish schools which seeks to identify the country’s very best young debaters. The three finalists in studio to deliver their speech on air are Ross Merriman from St. Mary’s College in Rathmines in Dublin; and Katie Sullivan Smyth and Dennis Gifford from Colaiste na hInse in Bettystown.
