Offaly students to see stars at Zeminar

Celebrities like rugby player Jamie Heaslip and singer Bressie are among those at 'Zeminar' from October 11 to 13. The event is billed as a new education and well-being event, “purpose-built for GenZ”, aged from 15 to 20.

The lengthy lineup includes Dr Rhona Mahony, Master of the National Maternity Hospital, former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh, and Cavan band The Strypes.

The event Ambassador is rugby player Jamie Heaslip, who took on the role because it focuses on "an important stage in people's lives".

Zeminar is set to be the largest youth-focused gathering ever seen in Ireland. Over 100 participants include Foroige, ISPCC, DIT, Gaisce and Teenline.

“It will provide a supportive environment to highlight what matters to young people in Ireland today, recognising their importance in society, and providing a space where they can inform themselves, and come away feeling confident that they can make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others,” said founder Damien Clarke.
