All-Ireland Credit Union Quiz

The All-Ireland final of the Credit Union quiz took place on Sunday, April 6th, in the RDS in Dublin.  The Scoil Ailbhe U-11 team, consisting of Jack Cooney-Shorley, Scott Brennan, Stephen Mawe and Jack O’Mara were representing the Thurles Credit Union and chapter, as well as Scoil Ailbhe at this amazing event. The creme-de-la-creme of primary debating teams, all 64 of them, had gathered from all over the country for this final test. Chaired by RTE impressario, Marty Whelan, the quiz was both a fun and a competitive event.

Having led the competition for most of the day, including at the half-way point, the Scoil Ailbhe team were pipped at the post in the end, into third place. Whilst disappointed not to be in the prize-winning category, the boys, their parents and the teachers were justifiably proud of their performance. They are truly among the best in the country.
