07/03/2011 LORETO QUIZ TEAM THROUGH TO ALL-IRELAND FINAL

The junior quiz team of Loreto College, Specialist School, have continued the school’s fine record in the Credit Union All-Ireland Quiz.  The ‘Chapter’ final of this event was held in Ballymena on 4th March 2011.  25 teams representing schools in counties Antrim and Londonderry enjoyed a well-run competition and thanks is due to the local Credit Unions for their role in the largest inter-schools competition in Ireland.

Loreto’s team of Aidan Boyle, Elaine Boyle, Fergal Dillon and Ryan Kane made an impressive start and by the end of the sixth round they were 8 points ahead of their nearest rival.  By the time all twelve rounds of questions were over, the margin had stretched to 13 points.  The team members won HMV gift vouchers as well as £150 for the school.

Rosemary Sweeney, manager of Causeway Credit Union, saluted the team members for their fine performances in this competition this year and wished them well for the final in Dublin, where they will be joined by teams from 99 other schools.

The team-members and their coach, Mr Clarke Rice, were congratulated on this achievement and wished well for the national final by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College.
