Internal Mace Finalists 158th Session

The UCC Philosophical Society Mace, also known as the William Francis Lynam Mace and the Internal Mace, is an internal Mace competition for team speakers, hosted annually by the Philosoph. The Internal Mace is the earliest of UCC's internal debating competitions, and was once known as the "Philosoph Tandem" or the "Heineken Competition", back in the innocent days when alcohol sponsorship was allowed on campus. The Mace gained its current name after the Society was donated a physical mace by an alumnus; on account of which, the winners of the competition are sometimes known as the "Mace-Bearers" of that session.
