The Ardee Credit Union Schools Quiz, which was held in the Bohemian Centre, recently, had 18 teams from nine schools participating in what turned out to be a nail bitingly close affair.
Teams from Ballapousta NS, Collon NS, St. Peters NS Dromiskin, St Peters & Pauls NS Drumconrath, St Mochtas NS Louth Village, Monastery NS Ardee, Newtown NS, Scoil Mhuire na Trocaire NS Ardee and Tallanstown NS took part in the U’11 and U’13 ILCU 2023 Credit Union quiz.
There was great excitement among the children, teachers and parents, as the Quiz Master Conor Thorne got the quiz underway.
Following 60 questions in the U’11 competition and 72 questions in the U’13 section, Conor announced the result of the U’13 competition with St Peter’s NS Dromiskin winning, just ahead of the runners-up St Mochtas NS Louth Village.

Conor announced that in the U’11 competition, Collon NS and Tallanstown NS had tied on 45 points each, which required a tiebreaker round in order for a winner to be declared. The tiebreaker resulted in Collon NS winning by 1 point, with Tallanstown NS runners-up.
Both St Peters NS Dromiskin in the U’13 competition and Collon NS in the U’11 competition, now progress to the Chapter stage of their respective competitions, which take place on the weekend commencing the 3rd of March.
