Kerry County Museum is the cultural partner institution for all Kerry secondary schools.

We provide online workshops on public speaking and would love to work with your school. The Regional Final will take place online on 2 March and the All Ireland Final will take place online on 30 March 2022.

ARTiculation Ireland is a public speaking competition which promotes the appreciation and discussion of art, artefacts and architecture in secondary schools throughout Ireland. The competition seeks to engage students between 15-19 years, regardless of background or experience, with art to develop the confidence and ability to express their opinions and conclusions. Participating students are offered the chance to deliver a ten-minute presentation before their peers and a wider audience about a work of art, an artefact or piece of architecture of their choice, through a series of internal school heats and regional heats across Ireland with the chance of being selected for the All Ireland Final. Kerry County Museum is the proud cultural partner institution for all Kerry secondary schools.

In 2019, Kerry participated for the first time in ARTiculation and Kerry was represented by Presentation Secondary School, Tralee at the All Ireland Final held in Kilkenny Castle. Competing with schools from Tipperary, Kilkenny, and Waterford, Kerry students Julia Szarota and Eimear O’Sullivan from Presentation Secondary School Tralee achieved the incredible result of coming first and second respectively! As a result, the ARTiculation All Ireland Final was to be held in Kerry in March 2020 events had to be postponed due to Covid restrictions and the Final took place via Zoom in November 2020 whereby Rosie Kennelly from Presentation Secondary School Tralee kept the ARTiculation Prize in the county!

We are now looking for schools to get involved in ARTiculation 2022! Participating students i are invited to explore selected local galleries and Museums through a series of Discovery Days. The days are designed to introduce students and teachers to ARTiculation Ireland, improve personal observation, analysis skills and help participants become more comfortable with the act of public speaking.
