Belvedere Mace 2015/2016

The Belvedere College Junior Debating Mace Competition (as that’s a bit of a mouthful, let’s call it the Belvo Mace, as it is colloquially known…) took place on Saturday last, September 26 and was a very successful event. The mace was organised by a mixture of fourth and fifth years, with myself, Dave Kelly, Daniel Culleton and Micheál Killarney (head) taking the roles of convenors. There were nine Belvedere teams competing on the day, with competitors coming from Elements, Rudiments and Grammar. All of the Belvo teams did very well, but unfortunately none of them were able to break to the final of the competition. The winning team in the final were Jes from Galway, while the winning individual was Hannah Gallagher from Loreto on the Green. Special congratulations should go to John Cleary (RUX), who finished ninth on the speaker tab in his first competitive mace competition and to Peter Tumulty (GF), who finished tenth. The Belvo G team (Peter Tumulty and David Boylan (GX)) also deserve congratulations, as they narrowly missed out on a place in the final. I would personally like to thank Mr Hogan and all of the convenors and organisers for a great experience and a great day!
