MORE than 30 teams of local brainboxes took part in the recent People First Credit Union table quiz at the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel.
The event saw primary school teams from the Portlaoise, Abbeyleix and Athy areas take part in under-11 and under-13 categories with credit union manager Seán Dunne doling out the questions.
The Heath NS claimed top prize in the under-11 section and the team consisted of Lucy Brown, Maia Brown, Conor Keogh and Catherine Graham. Scoil Phadraig Naofa, Athy finished in the runner-up sort.
In the under-13 category, Knock NS took the honours with a team comprised of Eoin Carter, Cathal Dundon, Aidan Lynam and Aoife Gorman. The second-placed team was Holy Family school, Portlaoise.
A credit union spokesperson said this year saw the biggest ever turnout for the credit union quiz, which has branches in Portlaoise, Abbeyleix and Athy.
The winners and runners-up will move onto to the regional final, which takes place later this year.
