The annual Eason Spelling Bee is an event that brings together the best spellers from across the country to showcase their impressive spelling skills. With over 500 schools participating each year, the spelling competition for 5th & 6th class pupils begins with an in-school competition, progressing to a county final, a provincial final and ultimately an all-Ireland final!

Scoil Mhuire was delighted to host the 2023 Co Wexford Final of the Eason Spelling Bee. We welcomed participants from 26 primary schools from around the county to our school, along with their teachers and family members. The competition was a tensely fought one, with increasingly difficult words to spell as the rounds progressed. The girls and boys from around the county showed nerves of steel, as well as super spelling skills.

Scoil Mhuire’s, Annie, from Mr Butler’s 6th Class was crowned Co Wexford Eason Spelling Bee Champion 2023 and we wish her every success as she progresses over the coming weeks to the provincial final in the Eason Store, O’Connell St, Dublin.

Well done and best of luck Annie!
