Crumlin wins Philspeaks and Hist 2018

The success of Ruth Komolafe and Ciara Reynolds just goes on and on.  On Friday April 13th, luck was no obstacle to them as they were victorious in The Hist Girls’ Mace Debates in Trinity College Dublin. This success follows on from a series of great performances earlier in the year. There were great celebrations in Trinity College previously on Saturday 20th January as the debating duo from 5th year won The Philspeaks debating competition. The competition is open to senior students in secondary schools across Ireland. It gives students the opportunity to debate and articulate a variety of ideas and experience a little of what further study in colleges such as Trinity has to offer. Both Ruth and Ciara have gained considerable experience this year under the tuition and guidance of their debating coach Ms. Ruth Murphy and their triumph in Philspeaks and The Hist competitions are a testament to their undoubted ability and terrific performances.
