Recognition of Volunteering efforts of Alliance Francaise

A  recognition of our volunteers. The Alliance Francaise Kilkenny has come in second place in the Kilkenny Community and Voluntary Awards 2021 in the Arts, Heritage and Education section. The winner was Butler Gallery. But very well done to all the committee who work so hard to keep the organisation going. While we all do it for the love of it, it is great to be recognised! The Awards Ceremony alas, had to be cancelled. We are always looking for volunteers for our committee so if you are interested and available please let any of the committee know.

Alliance Francaise Kilkenny represent Ireland in World Quiz

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.
