All Ireland Gael Linn Competition Winners

Last Wednesday was a momentous day for Athlone community college when their senior Irish debating team were crowned all Ireland champions. In a closely contested debate the Community College overcame tough opposition from Belvedere College Dublin, St Mary’s College Carlow and Laurel Hill Limerick. The team of Fiona Molloy (Captain), Annie Sheehan and Catherine Costello opposed the motion ‘ An Taoiseach should refuse his invitation to the Whitehouse on St Patrick’s Day.
It was a wonderful occasion for the Community College team and their mentor Ms Eileen Mac Evilly as the school have been All Ireland finalists in this Gael Linn Competition on no less than 8 occasions.
