Well Done Debaters

Congratulations to Dominican College’s junior debating team on their win last Thursday in UCD. Oscar Wilde once wrote “Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.” and it is without a shadow of doubt that these young ladies have what it takes to succeed! Not even hurricane Ophelia could stop these fantastically determined students who showed what it really means to work together as a team! It has been my privilege to coach this team since we began our journey this September! (Ms. Donohoe)
