The quiz in a highlight of our calendar and we enjoy the opportunity to meet and encourage the younger members of our communities.
This year in our quiz 140 children representing 10 primary schools in the locality took part. This is a significant increase over last year. We would like to thank the participants, parents and schools for their commitment and effort in supporting our event. The winning team in each category will now go forward and represent Rathkeale & District Credit Union at the Chapter Table quiz, which will take place in March.

Croom N.S. were the runners-up in the Under 11 category and Our Lady’s Abbey, Adare in the Under 13 category. The winning teams and the runners up in each competition received cash prizes presented by staff of the Credit Union
Congratulations to the winners of our quiz and thank you to all the participants. We would also like to thank the volunteers from our Board who helped run the event, without volunteers these events cannot take place. We are already looking forward to next year’s quiz!
