On Friday, May 2nd the Scoil Mhuire debating team, consisting of Emma Thornton(captain), Maeve Hickey, Hazel Byrne, Aisling Stafford and (substitute) Ciara Regan took part in an EU sponsored debate at Ashboune Library. The team were accompanied by supporters from Transition Year and team mentor, Ms Caffrey.
The motion under debate was that 'The EU has done a great deal for Irish women.' The opposition were from St Patrick's Classical School in Navan. Given the topic under discussion, it turned out to be a veritable battle of the sexes. On this particular occasion, the Scoil Mhuire girls emerged victors in the encounter and will go on to defend the cup won by last year's debating team in the final.
The final will be held on May 21st at the European Commission Food and Veterinary Office in Dunsany.The very best of luck to you ladies!
