06/10/2015 SUCCESS IN GAEL LINN QUIZ

Loreto’s Irish department are once again thrilled as a Year 10 team has been placed second in the regional heat of the annual Gael Linn Junior quiz. The victory took place in The White Horse Hotel, Derry on Tuesday 6th October.

The jubilant team of Pól Ó Raifeartaigh, Sorcha Nic Alastair, Cáit Ní Dhochartaigh and Cillian Colbárd soared past over 300 other competitors to win second place and will go on to represent Coláiste Loreto at the Ulster finals early in 2016. The quiz was followed up by an impromptu karaoke and a lively céilí with our own  pupils participating enthusiastically! The Gael Linn hosts complemented Loreto’s pupils on their impeccable turnout and keen participation.

Their Irish teachers, Bean Uí Mhaoláin and An tUasal Ó Duifinn are extremely proud of all participants and in particular our prize winners.
