Our Spelling Bee Team were on the road again this week.  First stop was Co.Meath to where the original competition was postponed due to the Beast from the East. As the week continued they would be making their 1st stops in Northern Ireland where they were being joined by Downtown Radio/Cool FM. Check out all the details from their time on the road below and find out which of our superb spellers were crowned Meath, Cavan, Fermanagh and Tyrone Spelling Bee County champions.
