Kennedy Cup found a new home after five years as Mayo National School relinquished its hold on it when the final of the Primary school’s table quiz was held recently. The victors were from Ballyadams with Aidan Gleeson, Brendan Murphy, Caoimhe Farrell and Aine Burke (over the hedge squad) defeating the Ballylinan (Is Feidir Linn) team of Donal Kaye, David Bride, Seamus Lacey and Kevin Byrne by two points on a score of 64 points to 62 points with the reigning champions back in 3rd place (The Googlers) from Mayo. 43 teams from 12 schools contested the semi-finals with Dineen Refractories as usual sponsoring the event. Thanks to everyone for the massive turnout and to all who assisted in any way.
