Loreto Foxrock also hosted the annual Loreto MACE debates for several years running.
As well as debating, many students in the school are interested in taking part in public speaking competitions. We participate in the Phil Speaks Competition which is organised by Trinity College, and other competitions, such as the National Forum on Europe.
