The ten speakers of the night were: Shannen, Rebecca, Tom, Jack Dunne, Bronwyn, Oyinda, Jack Cherry, Robin, Rab and Lorcan. Shannen's speech was on Cystic Fibrosis. The way it was delivered was gripping; the emotion behind it kept the audience completely engaged. Even though I had heard the speech numerous times before, it still brought tears to my eyes. We (as an audience) could tell how close to home this subject was to Shannen and the end just brought around different emotions which are hard for me to explain.
