The Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) hosts the All Ireland Schools Quiz annually, attracting over 25,000 participants in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties.
The Quiz is run throughout the winter months in communities all over Ireland by volunteers from over 496 ILCU affiliated credit unions.
With the aim of encouraging teamwork among young school children under the age of 13, the questions for the Quiz are compiled by primary school teachers and cover topics such as geography, history, music, literature and sport.
The Quiz consists of two knock out stages. St Dominic Credit Union firstly organises the quiz for the primary schools in our own commonbond. The winners of this Quiz move on to regional level and culminate in a National Final Day in Dublin in early April where 100 qualifying teams compete.
The Quiz is divided into two sections: Competition A for children up to 11 years and Competition B for children between 11 and 13 years.
