Friday, 27th January 2023
Last Friday the 27th of January, over 300 people from 22 schools across Dublin and Wicklow, 14 guest chairs and 38 Blackrock students enjoyed the day. RockMUN were delighted to have former Irish diplomat, Mary Whelan, and Deputy Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Yaron Oppenheimer, deliver speeches on key topics relating to life as a diplomat.
We would like to thank all in maintenance & facilities, catering, finance, housekeeping and our own staff and head chairs for their incredible work both in the lead up to, and on the days of, the conference.
We also recognise the outstanding work of the organising committee made up of Aran O’Flaherty (5th Year), Jamie Starr Bourke, Aaron Murtagh, Gavin Bowen-O’Connor (all 6th year), led by Frazer McGinn (6th Year). ROCKMUN 2023 would not have been in anyway successful were it not for the outstanding work and leadership of these students, putting on hours upon hours behind the scenes, creating proposals, arranging logistics and overseeing the day-to-day operations of ROCKMUN.
Most importantly of all we thank Ms. Fitzsimons our MUN Director for the resounding support she has provided MUN in Blackrock College especially in providing exceptional guidance to the students and we hope it will long continue.
We’re looking forward to seeing what ROCKMUN 2024 will bring us, and we hope we can build on the success of this conference.
