U14 Quiz: Many thanks to all who took part in our local quiz on Monday 8th March. Thanks also to our quiz master Eamonn Bolger. The following 12 were picked to represent the parish at the county U14 quiz final in Athleague on Friday night last: Mairead Cleary, Cian Donohoe, Eran Farrell, Cormac Thompson, Luke Glennon, Karl Nerney, Rachel Banahan, Catherine Geoghegan, Caoimhe Glennon, Eimear Collier, Laura Farrell and Jade Farrell. The two teams put in good performances and are much more knowledgeable as a result. Thanks to the parents in our parish for bringing our Community Games participants to training and to competitions.
