This week I had my second Irish debate with Ciara and Orla. This time our motion was 'The gathering 2013 is a scam'. Our team were against the motion which was a difficult argument. The debate took place in Newbridge. We were all very nervous on the way to the debate , but we had an opportunity to practice in the car. When we arrived at the debate we sat down at our table and waited for the other teams to arrive. The other schools were excellent and had very strong arguments. After hearing all of the schools the adjudicators left the room to choose the two winners. Unfortunately we did not win our debate, but we all had great fun and found it a very beneficial experience. I would like to thank Ms B. for all of her help and we greatly appreciate all that she did to help us :).
