01 May All Ireland Business Studies Quiz 2014
25 teams of 3rd year students gathered at L.I.T. Thurles yesterday for the 3rd annual All Ireland Business Studies Quiz hosted by the BSTAI.
Coláiste Éanna was represented by 2 teams of 4 students, both of which had qualified for this competition in the Dublin regional qualifiers before Christmas. We were 1 of only 2 schools that managed to have 2 teams in the national final this year.
After 5 rounds of questions, both Coláiste Éanna teams were in joint 1st position. After the final 5 rounds, one of our teams finished in joint 1st position with 2 other teams, and our other team finished in 4th place.
What followed was a sudden death playoff. After the 2nd question, Holy Faith, Clontarf were eliminated and finished in 3rd place. It took another 5 questions to separate the final 2 teams but the Coláiste Éanna team finished in 2nd place behind winners, St. Kieran’s of Kilkenny.
Having 2 teams in the top 4 positions was an amazing achievement and congratulations go to the teams: Niall Donohoe, Eoghan Monahan, Nadeem Naber and Cian Stenson who finished in 4th place, and to the team of Tom Giblin, Eoin Stokes, Conor Wolfe and Matthew Wilson who finished as national runners-up.
