About Us


The UCC Philosophical Society is one of UCC’s largest and oldest societies with a membership of over 400 students. We host house meetings and socials every Monday evening in Kane G19 at 19:00, open to everyone who wants to come along.

There is also loads of socializing going on throughout the rest of the year with events such as Halloween, our famous Mistletoe party, quizzes and movie nights.

Every Tuesday night we have Speaker Development-sessions where to facilitate a chance to learn how to debate and speak confidently in public. These are held in the North Wing Tower Rooms at 19:00.

We also send students to debating competitions all over Ireland and Europe nearly every weekend. This year we’ll be sending teams to Berlin, Leiden, Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, London, Dublin, Limerick, Galway and many more!
