The achievements of the students of St Mary’s CBS Secondary School Enniscorthy in competitive local and national public speaking and debating over a 32-year period are recounted in a new book titled Stand Up, Speak Out by the well-known secondary school teacher, county footballer, GAA and ASTI activist Jim McGovern.
Sky News journalist Enda Brady, one of his past-pupils, will launch the 300-page book which is subtitled Memoir of a Public Speaking and Debating Tutor at the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford on Wednesday 20th February at 7.00 p.m.
John White, the former General Secretary of the Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland, (ASTI) will be a guest speaker.
For 32 of his 37-year career as a teacher, James McGovern gave after-school training in public speaking and debating to numerous students in the Enniscorthy area.
He said: “They started shy, lacking confidence and hesitant and it was most gratifying to see them grow in competence and confidence so much so that many of them, now adults, address tens and thousands and millions of people across the world.
Among the achievements of his students are all-Irelands in the Mental Health Association of Ireland Project, the Knights of Columbanus, the Concern and Maynooth Debates and the Phil Speaks and other prestigious university debates.
James McGovern is a native of Dring, Ballinulty, Co. Longford. He attended St. Mel’s and is a graduate of Maynooth. He trained for the priesthood, spending three years in the Gregorian University in Rome before coming back to Ireland to follow a career as a teacher .
He is a prominent GAA activist, having been involved with Glynn-Barntown and as member of the Wexford senior football team. He has trained Wexford Minor Football and U-21s and has managed the Wexford ladies football team.
He is also a member of the national education committee of the Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland (ASTI).
The book, his third, marks his retirement from his 37 year career as a teacher.
