Tyrone and Ulster Quiz: 2018
A great sense of anticipation and excitement was felt in our local primary schools this week, as Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Thír Eoghain organised a series of quiz heats across the county.
This year almost 50 schools competing against each other.
The format of the quiz saw 60 points up for grabs over 10 rounds of 6.
Five schools hosted the competition:
Primate Dixon P.S, Coalisland; St. Conor’s P.S, Omagh; Edendork P.S;
St. Colmcille’s P.S, Carrickmore and St. Mary’s P.S. Ballygawley.
In order to qualify for the Ulster Final, schools had to secure the top two scores throughout the county (from all five heats).
As things transpired, the two schools in the parish managed to produce teams who scored 49 & 50 out of 60. St. Colmcille’s P.S. Carrickmore with 50 out of 60 and St. Teresa’s P.S. Loughmacrory with 49, both teams were level coming into the last round.
Both schools now compete in the Ulster Final in The Hillgrove Hotel, Co. Monaghan, on Wednesday 14 March.
Ádh mór oraibh!
