Once again the Hist has been incredibly well represented at the World University Debating Championships, which this year took place in Manila in the Philippines.

 

Hist B, consisting of John Engle and Catherine Murphy, managed to break in a fantastic fourth position and get through to the octo-finals, as well as being ranked the best Irish team.  Individually, Catherine came tenth on the speaker tab while John appeared in 15th position.  Huge congratulations to both for those outstanding achievements.

 

Congratulations are also due to the team of Hist A who were Sally Rooney and Kate Oliver, who came very close to breaking as well.
