GOLD MEDAL DEBATE
Congratulations to Joshua Kieran Glennon, who won the 6th Year Gold Medal Debate on Monday, May 11, 2015 and will be the Valedictorian on Prize Day and at the Graduation Lunch on Sunday 17th May.
Joshua was a deserving winner in a closely-contested debate which was zealously embraced by the 6th Year body. Joshua was one of a team of 4, the others being: Stephen Buckley, Fiachra Bourke and James Brandon – that failed to defeat the Motion that:
‘THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT THIS GENERATION HAS BEEN LIBERATED BY THE INTERNET”.
The proposition of Tomas Beecham, Louis Hoffman, Joshua Gorman Climax and Hugh Mohan contributed hugely to the Debate and had the satisfaction of carrying the Motion. I thank all 8 Speakers. They were well prepared, each making telling points.
Finally, I thank Chairman Mr Byrne, Judges: Mr Sheil,
Ms Nulty and Shane Kelly (Class of 2013) and Timekeeper David Fenn (5th Year) for their organisation and adjudication of the Debate.
