Blackhall Place wins 2021 Bréagchúirt Uí Dhálaigh

The Blackhall Place Law School team scooped the honours at this year’s Gael Linn Bréagchúirt Uí Dhálaigh.

Congratulations to Eimear Gallagher, Nadia Hourihan and Cormac Bergin on their success at the competition on 5 November.

Bréagchúirt Uí Dhálaigh is run annually by Gael Linn in honour of former President and Chief Justice of Ireland Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh.

This is a competition for third-level students, but especially for those studying law, and takes the form of an appeal against a court decision.

Plead both sides

Each team must resolve and plead both sides of the case, after being told just one day before the preliminary rounds which side they will be pleading.

Gael Linn also thanked Cormac Ó Dúlacháin SC, Daithí Mac Cárthaigh BL, Kate Ní Chonfhaola BL, and the King’s Inns and the Courts Service for their continued support of Bréagchúirt Uí Dhálaigh.

The preliminary rounds took place at the King's Inns on Henrietta Street‚ in Dublin 1, and the final was held in the Four Courts before judges that evening.

The winners were presented with a permanent Gael Linn trophy and a cheque for €600.

Comhghairdeas lena buaiteoirí Eimear Gallagher, Nadia Hourihan agus Cormac Bergin!
