Kilcormac Credit Union has invited local schools to participate in the first stage of the nationwide 2017 Credit Union Schools’ Quiz competition which will be held in the KDA Centre at 8pm on Friday, 27 January. Over 25,000 schoolchildren under the age of 13 will compete in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties. The questions, compiled by School Teachers, will cover such general topics as Geography, History, Music, Literature and Sport. This is the 26th successive year that the Schools Quiz has been organised by the Irish League of Credit Unions. It consists of two ‘knock out’ stages which culminate in a National Final in Dublin in early April when 100 qualifying teams will compete where the winning teams will receive a welcome cash prize. Kilcormac Credit Union wishes all the local teams the best of luck.
