The Oxford schools debating competition is the biggest debating competition in Britain. Over 700 teams (from a number of different countries) compete to try and secure a place in the finals day held in Oxford in March.
The Irish trials for this event took place in Wesley College last Wednesday (9/1). With only three spaces available the competition was intense. After a great performance two teams from Loreto College were among the three selected to go to Oxford.
We want to congratulate Hilary Hogan, Niamh Ní Leathlobhair, Gráinne Lowney and Rachael O’Byrne on a fine achievement and wish the girls the best of luck at Finals Day in March.
