Know Your World 2009: the winners

And the winners are: St Macartan’s College Monaghan!

After nine regional heats, two semi-finals and one national final, St Macartan’s College, Monaghan has emerged as this year’s Know Your World champions.

A close one

It was always going to be a tightly fought contest. With just three points separating the top seven teams at one stage, the organisers were wishing they’d planned a tie-breaker round!

However, St Macartan’s managed to edge past Midleton College, Cork in the last round, to win by a mere two points. In joint third place were Douglas Community School, Cork and Newpark Comprehensive, Dublin.

Quiz whizz

Well done to all the schools involved and to their teachers. Photos of the final are posted here on flickr. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a quiz whizz, you can download the questions (and the answers – if you need them!) here
