Two teams from the Ursuline qualified for the All Ireland Final of the Knights of St. Columbanus Public Speaking - a first in the history of the competition.  This competition attracts competitors from the four corners of the country. 

The school is also in the final of the Soroptimist Competition where Kerry Tierney does the honours on the very current theme of the empowerment of women.
