The following sheets may be downloaded and printed up as a resource for your school. We have found them ideal for expanding children's knowledge. The questions were sourced by Mrs. Wall, Mr. Ellis and Mr. Farrell. The resources were uploaded by this years quiz team. Enda Holohan, John Whealn, Sean Farrell, Frankie Coughlan and Jeff Moran. They also had to learn them all!! They are broken into various categories which may be of some use. We have also tried, where possible, to keep each group of questions to one sheet. Please let us know how you get on with them. The children would be delighted to hear from you. Our e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org Also, please let us know if we have made any mistakes!!
