    The Political Youth Wings Debate (with Trinity College’s Historical Society)

    • 26 Oct 2021, 07:00 pm
    • UCD Fitzgerald Chamber
    • Event Description

      Join Lawsoc and The Hist this Tuesday at 7pm in the Fitzgerald Chamber as we discuss the motion "This House Would Abolish Political Youth Wings" featuring special guests such as the president of Young Fíne Gael Art O'Mahony and Ógra Shinn Féin chairperson Caoimhín McCann. Political youth wings have been the mouthpieces and recruiting organisations for Ireland's major political parties for the last number of decades with many current politicians having reached the upper echelons of their parties through their involvement as members of the youth wings. They have also received some criticism for promoting views that were not held by the main political parties, either too repressive or liberal and also that they indoctrinate their young members into a life of politics and partisanship. Our speakers will aim to balance the pros and cons of convincing us of their side of the argument. So what are you waiting for?!? Be sure to reserve your tickets for this wonderful debate!
