Alex Kennedy delivering her TED-Ed talk in March 2019

Alex Kennedy, from Larkin Community College, Dublin, has been selected to participate in the TED-Ed Weekend event in New York early next year.

Alex is one of 15 students from around Ireland who participated in the Oireachtas TED-Ed Club this year. The students met in Leinster House for training and public speaking coaching. In March 2019 they gave TED-style talks in Dublin Castle.

The programme was part of Dáil100, the Houses of the Oireachtas commemoration of the centenary of Dáil Éireann.

TED-Ed Weekend events are gatherings of students selected from TED-Ed Clubs worldwide. The weekend will showcase and amplify the voices of the next generation of TED speakers.
