This kid had to spell Taoiseach on national telly in the US and nailed it

Fair play lad.

FAIR PLAY TO this kid taking part in the National Spelling Bee Championships in the States yesterday.

He was asked to spell Taoiseach, and WE, Irish citizens, can’t even spell that off the top of our heads.

Eleven-year-old Nihar Janga, not only knew that the Taoiseach was an Irish Prime Minister, but he could spell it with no bother at all.

Now, that’s impressive

Many didn’t agree with the word being used at all

Congrats Nihar, you little legend. He was crowned co-champion with Jairam Hathwar, but he won in our hearts.
