Luke Fehily, Auditor, 250th Session

Auditor’s Welcome

Welcome to the Hist! With an unrivaled tradition of promoting discussion stretching back two and a half centuries, the Hist is the heart of Trinity College and – as put by Sen. Ted Kennedy at the Bicentenary Address - “the greatest of all the schools of the orators."

This year marks the Society’s 250th Anniversary and there is a tremendous college-wide effort to organise a series of special events and celebrations for this significant birthday. Get ready for Hist250 - expect a wide variety of excellent guests, lively debates, and balls galore.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch with me at
