Celbridge School Visit Leinster House

Celbridge_School_LHTourOver 90 students from Scoil Mochua, Celbridge recenlty visited me in Dáil Éireann. In one of the last school tours before Leinster House temporarily closes for renovations the students met with me to discuss the issues with Celbridge, including the need for a new playground and less homework.

The students, who went on a tour of Leinster House, also had mini debates in the Dáil, to demonstrate their debate skills which they had been practising in the weeks prior.

I am delighted to meet with all the students from Scoil Mochua today. It was a pleasure to debate them and I think we have some future TD’s from Celbridge in that class. I’ll have to watch out for them. I look forward to helping them on their projects, and as one student said to me ‘Lets make Celbridge great again’.
