Killashee had 2 teams at the county table quiz last week. Well done Eadaoin Regan and Dylan Farrell and also to Ruth Kavanagh, Ann Marie Murphy, Clodagh Kiely and Rian Cox who did so well , all of whom will be eligible for the quiz again next year. A special word of thanks has to be extended to Clodagh Kiely who turned out twice last week at a moments notice for the art competition and for the quiz. The girls U13 table tennis team took on Dunshaughlin of Meath on Sunday last in the Leinster quarter finals. The team of Orla Duffy ,Emer Tyrell,Clodagh Kiley Ann Marie Murphy and Aoife Kavanagh recently started playing table tennis so it was a great achievement for them to do so well in getting to this stage of the competition. Unfortunately Dunshaughlin came out on top but these girls will be back stronger than ever next year. Well done to all.
