Eason is delighted to announce Evan Mimnagh Reily as this year’s winner of the County Roscommon Eason Spelling Bee Final.

Evan Mimnagh Reily, who is a student at Cloonakilla NS, soared to the top following an intense competition in which he faced fifteen fellow spelling enthusiasts. He will now go on to compete in the Connacht Provincial Spelling Bee later this year, which he is very excited for. Evan is a keen reader and particularly likes books on history.

Celebrating its tenth year, the Eason Spelling Bee provides a fun, educational outlet for school kids, encouraging them to expand their vocabulary and develop their confidence.

As well as the prestigious title of Eason Spelling Bee 2023 Champion, the top Bee will also take home a collection of books for their school library worth €7,500, as well as a personal collection of books worth €500.

  This year, over 500 schools nationwide will compete against each other in a bid to win the coveted prize. The Eason Spelling Bee team will be travelling around the country to host County Final Bees, and then progressing to a Provincial Bee contest. The champions from these will then go head-to-head in the All-Ireland Final Bee, taking place in June 2023, with the lucky winner being crowned King or Queen Bee.
