Well done to our junior quiz team who have reached the All Ireland final of the Credit Union quiz. Jacob, Gavan, Eoin and Fionn had a convincing victory in the South Dublin final in Sandymount last Saturday. Having defeated the local opposition in Rathfarnham a few weeks ago they upped their game to finish nine points ahead of St. Olaf’s. They correctly answered questions about Rhianna, zucchinis and Easter Island!! They will be up against the best 50 teams from all over Ireland over Easter in the RDS and we wish them all the best.
We were delighted to welcome Dublin’s 2011 All Ireland senior medallist Kevin McManamon to the school last week to present medals to all the boys who took part in the 2nd/3rd/4th class football leagues during the first term. Kevin, who scored Dublin’s goal in that famous victory over Kerry, told the boys that he started playing football in school mini leagues. Our thanks to all the teachers and older boys who helped run the leagues every Thursday and also to the staff at the VEC grounds.
