Congratulations to both of our Senior Debating Teams who have charged their way to the Laois Senior Debating Cup final. Both teams encountered very strong Coláiste Iosagáin teams 1 & 2, SCR and Heywood in the preliminary rounds, but remained undefeated. This leads to the excitement of an all CBS final. 

CBS 1 consists of our very eloquent fifth years; Jack Murrell, Adam Raji, Cathal Ging, Kyle Jimmy John and Evan Holden. Kyle and Adam also were nominated Best Individual Speaker in rounds one and two respectively. 

CBS 2 is a combination of our experienced sixth years William Barrett and Nathan Duffy, and our enthusiastic TYs; Andrew Coyne, Jack Fennell and Best Individual Speaker in both rounds Harry McGree. 

The teams have been working hard along with their very proud mentors Ms. Hyland and Ms. D. Carroll. 

On January 22nd, both teams will go head to head in a public venue. One thing is assured, St. Mary’s CBS will be bringing home the LSD Cup!
