Granard's Niamh Grier, who is in Form 4 in Wilson’s Hospital School, was the joint winner of the Soroptimists public speaking local heat in the Mullingar Park Hotel last week.

Niamh is pictured with her teacher and coach Mr Burke.

The motto of Niamh's speech was 'break the stereotype' and she focused on the heroism of Edith Cavell, whose courage saved the lives of hundreds during World War 1.
