Senior Loreto Mace Debates

On 18th January,we had the pleasure of hosting the Senior Loreto Mace Debates.Ten Loreto schools from all over the country started their day extremely early and travelled to Clonmel to take part in this competition.

The first round’s motion was ‘This House would arm teachers in the US’,the second round’s motion was ‘This House regrets Irelands obsession with getting a University education’,and the final unprepared round’s motion was ‘This House would eradicate all social media’

Four teams from our school entered the competition,

Bríd Moynihan & Sinéad Bond

Leah Cullinan & Mia Duggan

Niamh Laste & Emma Reilly

Mary O’Keefe & Jane Murphy

All of our debaters represented our school incredibly well with some outstanding performances,but it was Bríd and Sinéad with their innovative ideas,cut throat refutation and natural confidence who qualified for the final!

A huge ‘Thankyou’ to all TY and 2nd Year students who acted as chairpersons,timekeepers and helpers on the day.Without your willingness and positive attitude,we could not have hosted this event.


Congratulations to all involved!
