Kilcoole kids visit Leinster House

Students from Coláiste Chraobh Abhann, Kilcoole, got to look inside the world of politics this week when they visited Leinster House on Wednesday.

The pupils from 2nd and 3rd year were visiting as part of their CSPE Action Project and were met by local TD Simon Harris

Harris met the students for a brief Q&A and discussed the day-to-day work of a TD.

“I was very happy to answer the pupils’ questions about my work for the constituency of Wicklow and my role on the Public Accounts and Finance Committees,” Harris said. “I firmly believe that political education is of paramount importance in the Irish education system.

“I have enjoyed meeting with Wicklow pupils and their teachers here in Leinster House over the past three years since my election as TD for the constituency and I welcome the opportunity to meet with more Wicklow schools in the future.”
