St. Finian's Community College


The Debating Society in St. Finian’s Community College was set up in 2018 by Ms. Shannon. The Society enters all major debating competitions in the country such as:

Senior Debating Competitions:

  • TCD Hist Girl’s MACE Competition
  • Philspeaks Secondary School Debating Programme and Competitive weekend.
  • Concern Debating Competition
  • Junior Debating Competitions:
  • UCD Junior Schools Debating Competition.


Despite its very recent inception, SFCC Debating society has gained much debating success.

In 2018 / 2019 in the 3rd preliminary round of the UCD Junior Schools Debating Competition our Junior Cycle members came second to Belvedere College who have a very long tradition of debating.

In 2019 / 2020 our Senior Cycle members also came second in a preliminary round to a Belvedere College team.
