A Murrintown team with all the answers will have the distinction of representing the south east region in the National Final of the Credit Union Table Quiz in the RDS in Dublin on Sunday, April 2.

Grace Maguire, Nathan Roche, Tadhg Murphy and Aodhán Collins from Murrintown national school won the Under 13 section of the quiz at the Amber Springs Hotel in Gorey with 10 teams from Wexford schools competing in the regional final.

The quizzing quartet had previously won the first stage of the competition to qualify for the regional or chapter finals. On that occasion, 30 schools from around County Wexford participated in the event at St. Aidan's Enniscorthy.

The Murrintown pupils each received a trophy while the school was presented with a plaque and prize money.
