The Concern Debates, as the name suggests, is a debating competition which is open to senior cycle students (fourth year to sixth). The debates are an excellent opportunity to learn about the way the world works, and to develop lifelong skills in research and public speaking, all while having fun.

You will have the chance to have your say and argue motions on development issues against teams from other schools. Your team will participate in four debates in the League Phase between October and January. Then, if you are one of the top 16 teams in the country you will progress to the knockout phase which runs from February to May.
