The annual Chapter 4 Credit Union Quiz was held in the Canal Court Hotel earlier this year with winners qualifying for the All Ireland Final in Dublin this month. Unfortunately none of the local schools took home the silverware this time with the winners being Donard National School, Clonroche, Co. Wexford and Kilmacrennan National School, Co Donegal.

Speaking at the event, ILCU President Brian McCrory said “Every school child who participated in all rounds of the Credit Union Schools Quiz this year should be hugely proud of their achievement. I would like to congratulate each and every one of them, along with their teachers and parents, for the time they dedicated and the effort they demonstrated. A special word of congratulations must be given to all of the 100 finalist teams today. Making it to the national final takes a huge amount of effort and they should all be extremely proud. The competition was fiercely fought in the end and our two winning teams are extremely deserving of the title. I hope all of the children here today enjoyed the event as much as those of us spectating did.”

The hotly contested event is run by the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) each year and attracts more than 25,000 participants. The local and regional knockout rounds are organised by volunteers from 400 ILCU affiliated credit unions, and took place in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties over the winter months.
