Sincere congratulations to Rory O’Sullivan and Ciarán Daly for winning the All Ireland (4th April) in debating on the motion “This house believes the surveillance state is the price we pay for a free society”. This is Rochestown’s second year winning the competition and Rory’s second title. Also representing the college were Ronan Daly and Jack Dignam.
Rory and Ciarán went on to face Scotland (11th April) in the International Mace Semi final in UCC. Rochestown were very strong but unfortunately did not take the day.
