Debating Ireland Competition: Inter-Regional Level

Ballinacarriga Debating Team strike again!

On Thursday 20th of March, Ms. Nagle, Mrs Milner, the Sixth Class debate team and their parents set off for Dungarvan for the inter-regional round of the Debating Ireland competition.  The motion was ‘All schools should have a healthy eating policy’ and Ballinacarriga were proposing the motion.  The opposing team were from Carlow and they had a completely different style of debating to our team.  It was hard to know which way the adjudicators would sway and spectators felt it could have gone either way.  Luckily for Ballinacarriga NS our journey in the Debating Ireland competition would not end here.  The motion was carried and we are now through to the All-Ireland semi-final!  Both the semi-final and final will take place on the same day in Dublin so the team have the tough task of preparing two motions before their final day out.

We are extremely proud of the whole team and we wish them every success on Tuesday 1st of April in UCD.
