Dublin Debating Night!

The inaugural Dublin Inter-Branch Debating Competition was held on the 28th April in the GMB Chamber, Trinity College. Teams from across Dublin took part in the first two rounds debating the motions "That this House believes censorship can never be justified" and "That this house would place all clinically obese children under State care", before the motion for the final, "That this House wold support gender discrimination in the workplace under certain circumstances", was revealed.

The UCD team of Kieran McCarthy and Eoin Delahunty emerged victorious on the night with Daragh Connell of Dublin South being named as Best Speaker. A massive thanks go to Cllr. Gerry Breen who chaired the debate and to Lizzie Munnelly and Maurice Fitzgerald who acted as Adjudicators. Indeed, I believe it will go down as the first debate in YFG history where an adjudicator interrupted with a point of information! Eoin Delahunty will think twice before trying to argue about paternal responsibility with Lizzie again...

Thanks also to everyone who participated in the debates and all those who came to watch. The standard was very high and the response was very positive, which shows that we have a solid foundation in Dublin to develop an on-going debating league over the next few months.
