The Youth Media Team had the honour of interviewing our President Michael D. Higgins at #Feilte.
We started our interview with a few words as Gaeilge and asked him what we as young people can do to be proud of our native language particularly with this year being Bliain na Gaeilge.
We also asked the President, after his many years of experience in the political sphere, if he has any advice for us young people and how we can use our voice and find our voice in the world of politics here in Ireland and abroad.
Finally we asked President Michael D. Higgins to tell us about his most important educational influence on his life so far.
As a team it was both a pleasure and an honour to meet our President. Interviewing Mr. Higgins was a great experience, one which we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
Thank you to President Higgins for taking the time to speak with us!
