A team from the Abbey C.B.S., Tipperary won the National Final of the Concern “Know Your World” Quiz held in Dublin recently. This annual event is open to second - level schools all over Ireland and the questions are mainly of a general knowledge nature. However there is a significant number of questions in each round on Developmental and Third World Issues. The Abbey students led from start to finish and St. Muredachs Ballina and St. Kierans College, Kilkenny were in second and third places respectively.
The Quiz Master was RTE presenter Colm Ó Mongáin and pictured with the trophy are (front) Kevin O’Halloran, Luke Corcoran and Stephen Barry, (back) Garret Hickie, Turlough Heffernan and Michael O’Dwyer.
