Chairperson's Welcome

We would like to welcome you to the Speech an Drama Teachers of Ireland website.

The Speech & Drama Teachers of Ireland supports their members by providing networking opportunities, resources, access to training & education, workshops in various aspects of drama & communication and advocating for it’s members with government bodies. It also offers a national annual festival to showcase member’s students in poetry, drama, musical theatre, public speaking & communications.

As an organisation, we are continuing to go from strength to strength and are very humbled by the diversity among our members, a testament to the dynamics of the Speech and Drama Teachers of Ireland and the vital role it plays in Irish society.

We would finally like to thank our members and our sponsors for helping us to make our FEIS such a huge success! Keep checking in for updates on our events and workshops.
