On Wednesday April 2nd the Institute of Technology Tralee travelled to the University of Limerick to contest the annual EU Jean Monnet Debate 2008.   The motion on the table was the upcoming reform on the Lisbon Treaty.   The ITT argued in favour of the Treaty and provided a lively discussion and contest against the UL team.  

Liam Moran (Bachelor of Science in Construction, Year 3), James Barry (BSc in Health and Fitness, Year 4) and Emily Kane (Higher Certificate in Business Studies Year 2) all put forward compelling arguments in favour of the Lisbon Treaty.   The ITTâ¿¿s team put forward a well prepared and well thought out argument in favour of the Treaty and managed to win the coveted title from the UL team.  

Adjudicators for the debate were Mr John Shanahan and Dr Patricia Conlon who announced IT, Tralee as the winners.  

The team was coached by Lucy Kelly Crowe, Lecturer at the Institute who commented, â¿¿The three students on the team for ITT are exceptionally talented and are particularly gifted at getting to the core of the motion.   Their hard work and commitment has paid off, we are very proud of them.⿝ She added â¿¿The UL team were a strong challenge and we are delighted to have been selected at the winners for 2008.⿝
