Success for The Phil at the Cork IV…

On Halloween Weekend,  the Phil Teams of Shauna Maguire and Andrew Linn emerged victorious from the Novice Final of the Cork Intervarsity Debating Competition. The competition is hosted each year by the Philosophical Society of UCC, who will also be hosting the World Championships in December.

The fresher team competed in the final against three other teams from the Literary and Historical Society of UCD, opposing the motion “That this house believes the developed world should give nuclear technology to the countries in the developing world”. After a hard-fought final, the adjudicators judged in favour of the Trinity Phil team.

The victory is particularly note-worthy considering the quality and quantity of the opposition at the competition. Oxford Union won the competition overall, defeating the Literary and Historical Society of UCD in the final, opposing the genetic alteration of children conceived through IVF.
