The Défi International is a worldwide quiz on French culture for members of the Alliance Francaise throughout the world. Alliance Francaise Kilkenny had our own version of the quiz among our students and the winners were Kayleigh Crews and Fred Tuite (both students in the Literature/Book Club class). They went on to the National Final in Dublin where they beat all the other Alliances in Ireland for the honour of representing the Irish region. The World Final was held recently (online by Zoom hosted by TV5 Monde) and they did very well against the other 32 contestants from around the world. But, no prizes unfortunately. Those were won by competitors from Madagascar, Madrid and Tenerife. But well done to Kayleigh and Fred for flying the Kilkenny and Irish flags in this worldwide quiz.
