Youth Media Team visit Claire Byrne Live.

Caitlin and Lorcan visited the Claire Byrne Show in RTÉ. Claire was speaking to guests about doping in sport, cystic fibrosis and most interesting to us, education. There were lots of students in the audience and they all had something interesting to say.

It was a great experience to visit the RTÉ studios and after the show we got to meet Claire herself. Claire said she was interested in the work we do and would be delighted to do an interview with us soon.

We are looking forward to maybe visiting the RTÉ studios again some time soon.

Interview with Lorcan Tuohy & Laura Walsh, Joint Winners of TY Personified Award

In the excitement of the awards ceremony,Elena managed to grab a quick moment with the two delighted winners- Lorcan Tuohy from Borrisokane CC (also a member of YMT!) and Laura Walsh from Sacred Heart Clonakilty. In the final round of the Richard Burke Ty Personified Award, the judges failed to separate Lorcan and Laura and they were announced as joint winners. This is the inaugural year of the award which is named in memory of Richard Burke, former Minister for Education, who introduced the TY programme into schools in Ireland.
