Spanish Debating Semi-Final

Spanish Debating Semi-Final

Took place 27th November

Hard luck to the Spanish debating team who were narrowly defeated last night in an extremely tight Semi Final against Templegoue College. The motion on the night was 'Las ciencias son más importantes que las letras y las humanidades' (Science is more important than the Arts and Humanities)

The team proposed the challenging motion and debated passionately on the night. The team worked incredibly hard to reach this Semi-Final stage of the competion- the third time for the College. Their dedication to debating these past weeks is highly commendable.

Theo Dempsey (Poetry) was awarded best speaker for the second time in the competion, a huge achievement for a 5th year student.

The team on the night were John Kirwan (Rhetoric) Kevin O'Connor (Rhetoric) Theo Dempsey (Poetry) and CIan Rodgers (Rhetoric).

We look forward to debating again next year!
