Third Level Debating

The Gael Linn third level debating competition will take place again this year with the final taking place at the Oireachtas festival in Dublin on Saturday 31 October 2015. This competition will be organised in partnership with Edel Ní Bhraonáin, Student Co-Ordinator with Conradh na Gaeilge and Aedrean Ó Dubhghail of  USI. Four third level college teams will compete for the Gael Linn/The Irish Times Cup and there will also be cash prizes for the winners and runners-up.

We are delighted to be associated with 'Maidens na Gaeilge', a new competition being run by Cumann Gaelach Choláiste na Tríonóide this year. The competition is for speakers who have never debated in third level Irish debates before. Many of the speakers taking part are students who peviously took part in Gael Linn's debating competitions at second level. More information from Áine Ní Haberlín, haberlia@tcd.ie

Gael Linn provides support for societies in third level colleges who undertake to organise Irish language debating, either within their own college or in collaboration with other colleges. This support may include advice and/or financial sponsorship.
