Oireachtas Debate Competition

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.
