Well, folks, just have to share this wonderful news with all you kind readers out there. The debating team at Sacred Hear Secondary School, Clonakilty, Co. Cork, last night successfully debated their way through to the final of the Concern Worldwide Debates. Well done to all as they’ve worked incredibly hard to get this far.
By the way, it is where I once attended secondary school and took part in debates myself. This is the first time the school has ever progressed to the finals.
Last nights motion: Torture is a just means of preventing terrorism. was opposed by the girls who defeated CBS Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
