The Articulation regional final took place in the county museum on Wednesday,6th March. There were four schools competing in this round of the public speaking competition…Ursuline Thurles, Presentation Clonmel, Nenagh College and of course Loreto Clonmel. The entries included a range of topics such as Japanese art and environmentally friendly fashion products .

T.Y. Student Mary represented Loreto with a fantastic take on the Mona Lisa. In her speech, she commented on how the Mona Lisa should not be the most famous painting in the world and how satire can refresh art. Mary’s quick fire wit entertained the audience, however unfortunately she didn’t get through to the next round. In saying that, her speech was exceptionally written and delivered and for that, we’re very proud.

Well done Mary!
