The annual Gorey Credit Union school quiz took place at the Community School, where 20 schools participated in the first round to battle it out for a spot in the next round.

The quiz, which is for primary school level, has two categories - under-11 and under-13.

There were 39 teams in total with 19 in category A (under-11) and 20 in category B (under-13).

Gorey Educate Together pupils Jamie Kinsella, Jack Monaghan, Aibhe Flynn, Eva Doran were the overall winners of category A.

The team from St Joseph's Primary School in Gorey, James Cleary, Conor Hughes, Daniel Ennis and Oisin Byrne, were the winners in category B.

The members of both winning teams each received a certificate and a goody bag. They will now go on to represent their schools at the regional final at 'chapter level', which will be held in March.

The quiz was organised by Gorey Credit Union marketing manager Tom Brennan, with quiz masters Jenny Swords and Fionnuala Doyle.

'We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped on the night and made the night such a success,' said Tom.

Winners from the regional stage will represent Wexford in the national final in Dublin's RDS on April 9, with Marty Whelan as quiz master. A hundred qualifying teams will be competing on the day.
