CryFM Radio Brain Blasters Quiz 2019

Today four 6th class pupils Caoilte (team captain), Meadhbh (designated speller), Darragh and Eoin headed to Youghal GAA clubhouse to take part in Cryfm Radio Brain Blasters Quiz 2019. 16 schools compete to win the title.We faced Curraglass NS in round 1 with a place in the quarter finals awaiting the winner. After 7 exciting rounds featuring history, science, maths, spellings, sport, audio and Captain’s Blast off we came out on top. It was exciting to see how a radio show is produced with sound checks aplenty.Our next opponents in the quarter final were Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann this was a much tougher challenge as we’d already seen them compete in their 1st round and knew it would be fairly competitive. Both teams were even up until the 3rd round where Gaelscoil then gained momentum. Cloyne NS fought back with a really strong performance by our team Captain in the final round but alas we were pipped at the post. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning and wish Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann all the best in the semi finals. A big thank you to Cryfm for what is an excellent opportunity for primary school children. The programme airs in early November.
