Kilmacrennan NS won the recent County Primary School’s (Garda Quiz) title on the 8th March 2018.  Congratulations to John-James, Jack, Éilis and Dan on a great achievement.

This is the third title won in 2017-18, along with the GAA Cumann na mBunscol County Title ( John-James, Jack, Éilis and Dan) and the LK Credit Union U-13 title. The victory  in the Cumann na mBunscol quiz event completed a five-in-a-row for the school in that competition.

Letterkenny Credit Union hosted their annual quiz in the Mt Errigal Hotel in late January 2018.  A number of teams from the school participated in the event.

Following an engaging contest, our U-13 team- Jack, Jack, Dan and Éilis – emerged victorious on the night and will participate in the Donegal, Derry and Tyrone Chapter Finals in March.

One of our U-11 teams- Grace, Lennie, Aisling and Hannah- finished in 3rd place, a mere two points behind the winners.

Comhghairdeas le gach duine.



Congratulations to our U-13 quiz team of Ronan, Eoghain, Thomas and Eilis who won the All Ireland Credit Union Quiz Final in the RDS in Dublin on Sunday, April 2nd.  The team battled their way through stiff competition in the Chapter Final in the Mt Errigal to claim a place in the final.

Over 5,500 teams initially entered this 32 county quiz, with over 20,000 children competing in the event.  Kilmacrennan School represented Letterkenny Credit Union in the National Finals and this event was hosted by Aiden Power.

The questions were challenging.  However our team rose to the challenge and were well positioned after the initial five rounds, scoring an impressive twenty-nine points out of a possible total of thirty.  Yet this left them in second place, with one team having made a barnstorming start of thirty out of thirty.

The team of Ronan, Thomas, Eilish and Eoghain kept diligently to the task at hand and were one point behind three other teams in  joint first as they entered the final round. However a great last round saw Kilmac effect a two question swing in this round, placing them one point clear, and outright winners on the day.  There were huge celebrations as the result was announced.  The winning school receives 1250, while the pupils receive a WII u and a silver platter

There was a rapturous welcome home in the School Hall for the winning team  that night.

Comhghairdeas le gach duine.




Well done to sixth class pupils, Thomas, Eoghain, Rory and Ronan on winning the 2017 County Final of the Garda Quiz recently.  Fifteen teams from across the county converged on the Mt Errigal Hotel for the event and it proved to be a most enjoyable event

Congratulations to our successful Credit Union Quiz teams this year. Having won both the 2014 Letterkenny Credit Union Quiz (78 teams participated), the U-11 and U-13 teams then won the Chapter Final (teams from Donegal, Derry and Tyrone participated). They thus qualified for the All Ireland final, held in the RDS in April 2014.

All roads led to the RDS on Sunday 6th of April for the All Ireland Credit Union Quiz Finals. Both teams enjoyed a great day, finishing a mere four questions behind the winners. Both teams were also the best performers from Ulster at the event.

Well done to Manus, Eamonn, Ella and Thomas(u-11)


Having won the Co. Donegal Cumann na mBunscol Allianz Quiz final recently, the team then represented the county in the Ulster Finals in Irvinestown in March 2014. Well done to Ciara, Manus, Meabh and Conor on a great performance on the day. They finished three points clear of the 35 other teams who had qualified, thus capturing the Ulster title.
