All Ireland Champions!!

Congratulations to our junior quiz team who won the All Ireland final of the Credit Union quiz in the RDS yesterday. Jacob, Gavan, Eoin and Fionn were up against the best 50 teams from all over Ireland and after 60 questions came out on top with a fantastic score of 55. They answered questions on such diverse topics as Einstein, Bob Geldof, The Hunger Games and prime numbers. Back in February we won the local final in Rathfarnham and then followed on with a victory in the South Dublin area final but we saved our best performance for the big day.
We wish to thank Rita Cullen and all at Rathfarnham and District Credit Union who we were representing. Every year around 20,000 primary school students from all over the country take part in this event and while learning, developing teamwork and enjoying it is a priority these boys’ achievement, a first for the school, has to be applauded.
