Colm Flynn

Speaker CV: 

Worlds in Cork 1996. (Robbed of the break. Well not really but the tabroom losing a ballot from a round we won didn't help)

Twice Finalist in Galway National Law debates. (Once against three Galway teams. We were not the crowd favourite that night. The second time I was opening government and was knifed…. by my team mate)

Finalist and best speaker at the Waterford IV (Yes there used to be one. No it was not much more prestigious then than it is now).

Semi Finalist at Cork and possibly Glasgow Ancients (but that could have been a QF can't remember but do remember getting my ass handed to me by the then World Champions. I still have nightmares)

Semi Finalist in the Times and Mace.

Semi finalist at World Masters in Sydney 2000 (where I was Opening Government and was then knifed......BY MY TEAM MATE!  I’m seeing a pattern here!).

And my proudest moment: Winner of the Ciaran Tracey (back when some people here were still trying to master the art of peeing in a potty).
