Event Description

“Charity Begins at Home!” was the 2015 annual Soapbox topic.
The debate was chaired by Highland Radio’s Donal Kavanagh with judges Matt Carthy MEP, Caroline O’Boyle, Toastmasters and Rosemary McClafferty, DCC.
This was a lively passionate debate with 27 registered speakers & 20 turnng up to speak on the night. The most common theme was that yes, charity does begin at home but shouldn’t end r=there.
The under 18s category was won by Cliodhna McHugh and the over 19s was won by Connor McDonough. Both winners took part in the National final in November where Cliodhna McHugh was highly commended.
