Largy College Debting

This year was the school’s thirteenth year of involvement. The team faced St. Flannans college from Ennis, Co. Clare in the National Finals. They opposed the motion ‘Africa rising is a false dawn’. Other issues debated by this year’s team include Global Population Growth, China’s involvement in Africa, the World Cup and Olympics in Brazil and Climate Change.
