The winner of this years Cathaoirleach cup (DLR TY quiz) and the title 'Brains of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown' is St. Benildus College, Stillorgan.
The Cathaoirleach Cllr. Carrie Smyth was on hand to present the trophy to the winning team who scored a whopping 36.5 points out of a possible 50 in what was an undeniably tough quiz.
Two teams were tied on 35 points resulting in a tie-breaker question. The students were asked to state the length of the Great Wall of China. The girls from Loreto College Foxrock were the closest earning themselves 2nd place in the process with the mixed team from St. Kilian's Eurocampus taking 3rd. Many thanks to the students who took part.
Thank you also to Senator Aideen Hayden who was the quizmaster for the event. Both Senator Hayden and Cllr Smyth were hugely impressed with the way the students conducted themselves and their intellectual talents.
