Having been named Connacht Spelling Bee champion, Fionn O'Leary from Gortletteragh NS had another challenge to overcome when he went head to head with his mother, Orla in a spelling competition!

Fionn and Orla were tested by Today FM's Alison Curtis with Orla ultimately (understandably) being caught out when asked to spell 'paleoecology'.
