Dr Edel Semple Acts as Adjudicator for Christian Brothers College Debate

21 Jun 2022

Christian Brothers College, Sidney Hill, Cork, held its 111th annual Gold Medal Debating competition in May. The debate adjudicators included our own Dr Edel Semple, along with Aoife O'Driscoll (CBC Head of English), Irene Warren (Director of The Performers Academy), and Donagh O'Callaghan (CBC past pupil). 

The competitors ranged from First Years to Sixth Years and the panel of adjudicators were greatly impressed by the oratory, passion, and arguments of these young speakers. CBC's Debating Society members have enjoyed success in local, national, and international debating competitions.
