Roco Win Cork Schools Junior Mace Debate May 2013


Victory for Rochestown in the Cork Schools Junior Mace

The curtain came down on the debating club this year with victory for Rochestown in the Cork Schools Junior Mace Competition. Ronan Daly and Padraic Malone were hugely impressive throughout the tournament, competing with students from over ten Cork City schools to get to the final, which they went on to win in great style. The unanimous verdict from the judges was a fitting tribute to their outstanding performance. Congratulations to both students.

Rochestown hosted the event and a special thank you must go out to our senior debaters for organising the competition. With over ten schools participating, it is a tribute to their enthusiasm and passion for the club that the whole event was such a success. Congratulations also to all the members of the debating club who participated on the day.
