Tipperary schools are being invited to participate in the first stage of the Nationwide 2013 Irish League of Credit Unions’ School Quiz competition, run by Thurles Credit Union in the Premier Hall, Rossa Street, Thurles on Friday 1st February 2013, at 7.30pm.

Over 25,000 schoolchildren under the age of 13 will again compete in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties. The questions, compiled by primary school teachers, will cover such general topics as geography, history, music, literature and sport.

This is the 22nd successive year that the Schools Quiz has been organised by the Irish League of Credit Unions. It consists of two ‘knock-out,’ stages, which will culminate in a National Final in Dublin in early April, when 100 qualifying teams will compete.

In addition to certificates and prizes to the winning team members, the winning schools will also receive a welcome cash prize.

In 2012, Scoil Ailbhe, Thurles successfully retained their titles in both sections (U11 and U13) in the first round of the National Credit Union Quiz and no doubt will be back again to defend their titles in 2013.

In the U11 competition Scoil An Chroí Ró Naofa, Urlingford finished second, while Moycarkey National School and Scoil Angela, Ursuline Primary in Thurles shared third place. In the U13 competition, there was a three way tie for second place with Scoil Na Maighne, Scoil Íosagáin, Upperchurch and Scoil an Chroí Ró Naofa, Urlingford, all finishing with the same number of points.
