Event Description

Gaoth Dobhair science debate

Leabharlann Phobail Gaoth Dobhair hosted the first of three Donegal libraries’  science debates. The motion for debate was ‘The potential benefits of using embryonic stem cells to develop new medical treatments mean we have a moral obligation to to support this type of research’. This first debate took place before a packed audience in the new Gaoth Dobhair library between Phobail Scoil Gaoth Dobhair and St Eunan’s College, Letterkenny. St Eunan’s emerged victors and went on to the second round in NUI Galway.
