Ms. Sally Donegan, presented the award of “outstanding speaker” to Ms. Isobel Carruthers-Kenny, Ms. Kelly Coyle was acknowledged by the judges as the best speaker on the presentation of the case for the appellants, and Mr. Donal O’Sullivan together with Mr. Colm Bohane were successful in obtaining a judgment in favour of the respondents.
