ALTHOUGH I READ the acclamation voiced on Twitter and Facebook, it took me a day to realise the impact of several very special moments I witnessed first hand while standing in a media scrum set up by Ireland's Youth Media Team when interviewing President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina. It all happened within the space of 10 minutes at the start of Feilte 2018, the annual conference of the Teaching Council of Ireland.
I think the dozen interviews recorded by our YMT.fm crew deserve to be in the listening queue of teachers everywhere because there's gold dust inside every interview I've heard recorded during Feilte. I've embedded the first seven minutes of a 35 minute playlist that you can get by subscribing to the Youth Media Team via podcast. If you prefer a visual tour of where the Youth Media Team spent their two days in Feilte, look at their Feilte 2018 photo album on Flickr.
