Colaiste Dun Iascaigh’s debating team has been celebrating recent successes in the All-Ireland Concern Debating competition.

The Colaiste squad of captain Kenneth Conlon, vice captain Sarah Coleman, Kirsty Arbuckle, Ceili Cowan, Ciara Creagh-Peshau, Anna Peters and Celine Prendergast have had two recent victories over teams from Templemore and St. Colman’s College, Fermoy.

A lot of the Colaiste’s old guard of experienced debaters have moved on this year and coaches Catriona Fennessey and John McCarthy thought that this might be a rebuilding year. Indeed four of our debaters have only begun competitive speaking this year. This makes the success that they have had even sweeter!
