Irish Senior Debating – Senior Team v Sion Hill, May 2022
Irish Senior Debating
On Thursday, 28th April, we were delighted to welcome Sion Hill to compete against our Senior Irish Debating Team.
The motion was: ‘There is gender equality in Ireland in 2022’
Both teams presented very well-researched and interesting arguments.
We congratulate Matthew O’Donnell, Michael White, Emmet Gulliver (all 6th Year) and Jack Burke (5th Year) who successfully proposed the motion, and Kimli McDonald from Sion Hill received the award for Best Speaker.
Many thanks to Ms Ní Choncheanainn for adjudicating and to Joshua Scallan (6th Year) who acted as Timekeeper. We also thank Mr Gleeson, Irish teacher in Sion Hill, for working with us to organise the debate and for his help with the adjudication.
The event was enjoyed by all, and we look forward to further collaboration with Sion Hill next year.
Finally, we acknowledge the tremendous organisational skills of Mr. Orrock.
