GAEL LINN SENIOR IRISH DEBATING
The Senior Irish Debating Team participated in the first round of the Gael Linn Debate held at Wesley College on Thursday, 23rd October 2014.
The team consisted of Captain, James Huggard (5th Year), second Speaker, Bernard O’Sullivan (5th Year), and Joshua Kieran-Glennon (6th Year) debated the Motion:
“TÁ ÉIRE AG ATHRÚ CHUN FEABHAIS” (IRELAND IS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER)
The boys were not successful in progressing to Round 2, despite very strong performances on the night, especially from Joshua who was commended by one and all for a powerful speech.
We congratulate the boys on their performance, urge them not to be discouraged and to encourage others to join them. The plan is to hold an Irish-speaking Club at lunchtimes.
I thank Mr O’Donovan for his time, interest, initiative and expertise.
