Speaking to Pa Laide CEO of Cara Credit Union , Pa said, “These guys are very experienced having competed in the National Finals last year in the under 11 age category. The schools quiz is one of our biggest youth events of the year and we are always delighted with the support from all the schools in Tralee, Castleisland, Killorglin. With the talent  shown  at Stage one and Stage two of the Schools Quiz it is very obvious that the future is in safe hands.”
