Don’t expect much blogging from me tomorrow as after work I am off to the Univerity of Limerick for the 1st Annual General Micheal Collins Debating Competition. I am on a team with the Vice-President of YFG. This means the judges are going to be really hard on us!
I got the first motion tonight. The first motion which I will be opposing and it is this:
Motion: That this house believes the anthem “Ireland`s Call” should be dropped at the opening of Irish rugby matches and “Amhran na bhFiann” and “God Save the Queen” be played instead.
Im lucky in the fact that I do oppose the motion, not sure about my team mate, but he will have to lump it!
This will be my first debating competition. While I have debated substansive motions before at such things as YFG National Conference and USI LGBT Standing Conference, this will be my first time trying to convince judges!
Wish me luck!
