Concern Debating

‘Well done’ to our Concern debating team following their unanimous victory over St. Anne’s of Tipperary on Tues last. The team, which was captained by Declan Atkins and also comprised Peter Carragher, James Whelan and Tom Bourke, successfully proposed the motion that ‘Genetically Modified food is essential in the fight against world hunger’. They will now face the Ursuline Convent in their final debate in the league stage of the competition where they will attempt to oppose the motion that ‘Social networks improve our understanding of major world events’.
