Congratulations to TY student Michael Moran who is the regional winner of the Treaty Debates Essay Competition run by the Oireachtas
The Treaty Debates Research Project Competition for post-primary history students was part of the Oireachtas’s programme to mark the centenary of the debates and vote on the Anglo-Irish Treaty in 1921-22.
Michael wrote his essay on local TD Daniel O’Rourke. Michael gave a very detailed account of the Deputy who later went on to serve in the Seanad and so was a very interesting individual to research. Well done to Michael and many thanks to his teacher Ms Reale for co-ordinating his entry.
