Niamh Ni Mhaoileoin (ex-Librarian) and Sally Rooney (Censor elect) won the DCU Open for the Hist on Saturday March 26th 2011. They were the top team in the preliminary rounds, as well as the best Pro-Am team, and won both the semi-final and the final decisively. Niamh was best speaker in the competition, while Sally was also highly placed in the top 10 speakers, a remarkable achievement in her first year of competitive debating.


Emer Duffy (Debates Convenor) and Niall Sherry (ex-DC, ex-Censor, ex-MC) also reached the semi-finals of the competition.
