Scór na bPaisti
Well done to our Quiz team of Darragh Kennedy, Kevin O’Brien, James Tobin, and Brian Tobin who emerged as joint winners with Sean Treacy's at the County Final of Scór na bPaisti in Cashel
last Sunday week. With both teams scoring a phenomenal 29 out of 30, a series of tie-breaking questions failed to separate them and the decision was made to make them joint winners. Well done to both teams. Unfortunately, our Figure Dance team of Alice Duhig, Niamh Coffey, Michelle Tuohy and Brianna Butler were unlucky despite a fantastic performance on the day. Well done to all our Club members who took part in Scór na bPaisti this year and we look forward to seeing you all on stage in future years. Thanks also to their parents and mentors for all your hard work and dedication and to our hard working Scór Committee.
