Scenes of jubilation at Mount Mercy College for De La Salle victory

Two teams of four from De la Salle College made school history by winning the First and Second place at the prestigious Munster Junior Certificate History quiz. This is a much contended competition, run annually by the Cork History Teachers Association was attended by fifty teams  from forty schools. As defending champions the pressure was on De La Salle to maintain the title and they won it in great style.  The team members, John Downey, Sean O’Leary, Kieran Murphy, Gerard Murphy, Jack O’Riordan, Adam O’Leary, James O’Mullane and Nicky John Dromey, were well prepared and handled even the tricky questions well. Their teachers, Ms Helen O’Sullivan and Ms Jean O’Donovan, and indeed the whole school are very proud of their achievement.
