Ten Students Involved in Leinster and National Debating Finals!

As we move into the business end of most debating competitions, the Coláiste is very well represented on all fronts. At junior level, six of our daltaí have qualified for the Leinster Finals' Day of the All Ireland Junior Debating competition! Well done to Eabha Brereton Hurley, Mark Hanley, Liam Walker, Peter Phelan, Laragh Philips and first year Aoife Forkin. 

 

At senior level, debates have coming in thick and fast. Sixth years Aoife Walker, Saoirse O'Donnell and Eoghan Boland have all qualified for the semi final of the Leinster Schools' Debating competition. Aoife and Eoghan have also qualified for the national run offs for the Irish team. Finally one of our sixth years has had incredible success in the Soroptimist National Public Speaking Competition. Medb Brereton Hurley has qualified for the national final to take place on March 10th in Ballina. We wish her and all our speakers the best of luck!
