Inspiring Ireland, Inspiring Students
A monthly Interview series with Influential Irish people
Audience: Teachers and Students in Senior primary classes and 2nd level schools
Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames, Director, Study & Careers
The ‘Inspiring Ireland’ interview series streams live interviews with influential Irish people into your classrooms – people that our children and teens have come to know from TV and other media. Hosted by Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames, PhD, www.studyandcareers.ie these interviews aim to inspire young people through real life stories.
‘We see well-known people on TV but we have no idea about their real-life story or how they got to where they are today. ‘Inspiring Ireland’ aims to get behind this by teasing out the story of their lives. Your students will learn about famous people’s lives, their lives growing up long before they became well known, what motivated them and influenced them to be the people they are today, their strengths and challenges. This is a treasure trove – the ultimate intention is that our students will find inspiration for their own lives’.
Exciting names we have lined up so far include the following:
Bryan Dobson (RTE News Anchor & News presenter) – did you know that he found learning to read difficult?
Rachael Blackmore – Cheltenham champion jockey, 2021 and first ever woman to win Grand National (2021)
Dr. Tony Holohan (Chief Medical Officer, HSE) – did you know the reliable face of Covid19 in Ireland is a Limerick man?
Ambassador Samantha Power – a Harvard professor, US Ambassador to the United Nations during the Obama administration, – did you know she was born in Ireland and emigrated to US at age of 9?
Dr. Aoibhinn Ní Shuilleabháin, PhD – Assistant Professor and Director, Maths & Science Teacher Education at UCD.
