Killoe tops in Longford Community Games U-14 Table Quiz

Longford Community Games continues from strength to strength with another massive turnout for the U-14 Quiz final with entries up 33% on previous years.

There were twenty-two entries with a total of eight areas competing for the title of best quiz team in Longford.

A busy Longford Arms Hotel ballroom filled with budding brainiacs with nine rounds of ten questions of general knowledge and a few specialist topics thrown in.

The brilliant quiz master Kevin Keegan put the youngsters through their paces in a professional manner with proceedings excellently managed.

It was a close race all the way through with reigning champions Killoe ‘A’ leading by a couple of points to several teams from Ballymahon/Forgney. Coming into the last round there was a three points difference between four teams which made for a very tense last round.

Clonguish ‘A’ and Dromard ‘A’ tied equal fourth and forced a tie-break which lasted two rounds. Clonguish just finished ahead of Dromard. After all the scores are counted and verified Killoe ‘A’ take the county title with Ballymahon/Forgney ‘D’ beating ‘C’ into second. A great effort and showing for Ballymahon.

Every placed child received a trophy to take home thanks to the generous donation from Midland Trophies.
