Sucess for The Phil at the Galway IV…

The Irish National Law Debates took place in Galway the weekend of the 13th and the 14th of February, with Phil speakers giving several strong performances. Four former or current officers of the society did so with their respective teammates. Registrar Kiera Healy and ex-President Ruth Faller were both knocked out in the semi-finals, while Debates Convenor Jonathan Wyse and ex-Secretary Edward Gaffney reached the final of the competition, doing the society proud with excellent speeches on a topical motion about the invitation of Holocaust deniers such as David Irving to universities. In addition to these successes, Ruth Faller was named as the second best speaker on the tab, missing the top spot by a single speaker point!

The society would like to congratulate all speakers on their achievements.
