Loreto College's Irish department is once again thrilled as a Year 11 team has won joint first place in the regional heat of the annual Gael Linn Senior quiz. The victory took place in The White Horse Hotel, Derry on Friday 7th February.

The jubilant team of Mollie Nig Uidhir, Brónagh Nic Niocaill, Máitiú Mac an Fhailigh and Tiarnán Mag Fhearail soared past over 200 other competitors to win joint first place. The quiz was, as usual, followed up by a high spirited céilí with Loreto’s pupils participating enthusiastically! To complete a great day, the Gael Linn hosts complimented Loreto’s pupils on their impeccable turnout and keen participation. 

The Loreto College Irish teachers, Bean Uí Mhianáin and Bean Uí Mhaoláin commented that they were, as always, proud of all the Loreto participants and in particular of the prize winners.
