ALL IRELAND CREDIT UNION SCHOOLS QUIZ
The Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) launced its 26th Annual All Ireland Schools Quiz in Jan 2017. The annual quiz sees over 25,000 school children under the age of 12 take part every year across Ireland.
The Credit Union Schools Quiz is one of the most exciting events in the primary school calendar. It consists of two knock out stages at local and regional level and culminating in a National Final in Dublin’s RDS in April 2017 where 100 qualifying teams will compete under the watchful eye of Quiz Master RTE’s Marty Whelan.
The Quiz will be run throughout communities all over Ireland by volunteers from over 300 credit unions. It seeks to encourage teamwork among young children under the age of 13. The questions are compiled by primary school teachers and cover a vast array of topics such as geography, history, music, literature and sport.
Speaking at the launch of the quiz, President of the ILCU Brian McCrory said: “We are absolutely delighted to launch our 26th Annual Credit Union Schools Quiz. For the past 24 years, the quiz has been hugely popular throughout the country and we expect this year to be no exception. We look forward to seeing our young qualifiers in the RDS in April, for what promises to be an exciting final and we wish everyone who takes part in the local and regional qualifiers the very best of luck.”
Registration for the Schools Quiz takes place in December, with registration forms sent out to the local schools inside our common bond. Teams must submit their official entry form before the deadline to Link Credit Union.
