A team from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, has won the Ulster title in the annual Gael Linn Irish Quiz, held in Lurgan on Friday 28th January.

Clódagh Nic Giolla Bhríde, Tiarna Nic Fhinneachta, Mairéad Ní Chiara and Clódagh Ní Chathain (all Year 10 at Loreto College) took the title, having beaten off stiff competition at an earlier regional heat, held at the White Horse Hotel, Derry, to go through to the finals. After much jubilation, the preparations began once again for the Ulster finals.

With confidence and self-belief, the four revised intently during the lengthy journey to Lurgan, County Armagh with Loreto College Irish teacher Bean Uí Mhianáin as their pilot.

The Ashburn Hotel, Lurgan proved an inspirational venue for the four as they once again beat off stiff competition from many schools throughout Ulster. Their Irish teachers, Bean Uí Mhianáin and Bean Uí Mhaoláin most certainly are proud of them.
The team members and their teachers were congratulated on this wonderful achievement by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College.
