Scoil Mhuire Trim win at EU debate

Transition year students from Scoil Mhuire, Trim were delighted with their success in the final of the Meath County Council Post Primary Schools Debate Competition. It took place on the 11th of May at the European Commission Centre, Grange. The motion before the house was: ‘The EU energy strategy will bring great benefits to Ireland.’ Rachel Farrell, Chloe Caffrey, Ruth Sherlock (captain) and Rose Higgins defended the statement against Ratoath College. They were assisted by their teacher, Ms Iseult Caffrey, and additional team member Eimear Byrne. It was a very exciting debate with compelling arguments and passionate delivery from both teams, but in the end Scoil Mhuire came out on top.
