Merlin College English debating meet every Tuesday at lunch time. 2019/2020 the debating team entered the Concern debates and the Knights of St. Columbanus public speaking competition. The debating team excelled in all competitions. In the Concern Debating Competition the Merlin College debating team won three out of four of their group debates and progressed to the last 32 knock out stages. In this round the girls faced Presentation Secondary College Kilkenny in Limerick city. The team put in a great performance on the night but were very unlucky not to get the win. The team has shown massive dedication and determination this year and can be proud of what they achieved in such a high-quality competition.

Preparations are also underway to run in house junior debating competitions for Junior Cycle students.
