About the Schools Quiz
The Credit Union Schools Quiz has been in existence for 29 years. Throughout this time it has brought unforgettable memories to participants and organisers alike. The Credit Union Schools Quiz holds a special place in the hearts of people who have been a part of it, and will continue to do so for many years to come.
Due to restrictions, this year’s quiz has taken an exciting new path, in which we’ve transformed the quiz into a new virtual format. We hope to be back with in person events soon, so we can properly celebrate the 30th year of the Credit Union Schools Quiz.
In its usual form, the Credit Union Schools Quiz is a competition for school children across the island of Ireland. Each year around 25,000 children from the four corners of Ireland take part. This annual event proves extremely popular year on year.
The schools quiz comprises of three stages.
Stage 1: Credit Union level
Stage 2: Chapter Level (regional quiz – 23 locations)
Stage 3: National Final.
Through our Virtual Credit Union Schools Quiz, there are no age limits for this year’s competition. This year’s version will offer fun for all the family, provide some healthy competition to classrooms across the country and even pit you against your classmates to see who can come out on top!

Competition A is for children who have not reached their 11th birthday on or before 31st December 2021. Competition B is for children who have not reached their 13th birthday on or before 31st December 2021
