Many congratulations are due to Peter Stapleton, Tom Cantillon and David Redmond from Poetry, who emerged victorious from the Liam O’Connell Perpetual Debate Competition last Monday (December 3rd). The three boys did the school proud and were awarded the winners’ trophy by the former Leader of the Senate and government Minister, Ms Mary O’Rourke. Ms O’Rourke commended the students on their in-depth analysis and excellent research on the motion as well giving a special mention to their coach Mr. Damien Carter for all the preparation involved.
