U-13 CREDIT UNION TEAM WIN THE 2017 ALL IRELAND QUIZ FINAL

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.
