Trinity Beat Oxford in Climate Change Debate

Posted on: February 20th, 2007

At the annual Student Economic Review (SER) Oxbridge debate this week, Trinity succeeded in overcoming a powerful Oxford team. The motion for the debate was “This house believes that the rich world must face its environmental responsibilities.”

Chairman Prof Dermot McAleese congratulated both teams for such a high calibre debate, noting in particular the contributions from winning Trinity teammates Edward Gaffney and Gilbert Pooley. Best speaker for the night went to Séin Ó Muineacháin, making it a clean sweep for Trinity.
