GOREY Community School student Michael Dwyer has won a trip to Brussels, and also an iPad, as well as a place in the national finals of the Europe Direct Regional Soapbox public speaking competition.
Michael won the regional final in Thurles recently, with his speech on 'Youth is wasted on the young.' He beat off competition from ten other speakers and now goes on to represent his region in the national finals on November 20.
This won't be the first time the busy student has been to Brussels, as he won a trip there at the same stage of the competition last year.
Everyone at Gorey Community School wishes Michael well as he progresses in the competition.
