Well done to all students who took part in the O’Connor-Power Debating Competition in St. Jarlath’s College, Tuam last week. Great preparation was put in by all involved. Tara Brady and John Duignan did the school proud with their performances and the icing on the cake was John taking home the award for ‘Best Speaker’.
