Scor na bPaisti Quiz
Roscommon Gaels entered a team in the Scor na bPaisti Table Quiz held in Kilbride Community Centre on Sunday, 5th December. Ably represented by Aaron Dolan, Ethan Hussey, Gillian Greene and Gerald Greene, our club faced stiff competition from 20 primary schools/clubs around the county. At the end of the final round, with a scoreline of 28/32, we were in joint first position with Aughrim NS. We were unlucky to lose the tie-breaker by one point. We are incredibly proud of this achievement - the first time our club fielded a team in this quiz. Congratulations to all.
