Event Description



Mountmellick Europe Direct and Mountmellick Library are delighted to announce the launch of the Soapbox Competition 2015. This year the competition will be even more exciting with two separate events being held over two weeks. The first event will be aimed at over over-nineteens and will be held on Tuesday 6th October, the second will be aimed at those aged eighteen and under and will take place on Tuesday 13th October.

This year the topic under discussion will be ‘Charity begins at Home,’ with 3 minutes being allocated to each speaker. Last year proved a great success with the winner of Mountmellick’s under-eighteens group, Daniel Williams, progressing to the national final in Dublin and winning the All Ireland Soapbox challenge 2014 in Farmleigh House. This year we hope Mountmellick will prove equally as successful. We look forward to hearing all the compelling arguments this year. Good luck!
