The 2014 Eason Spelling Bee will officially get underway this morning (Thursday) in Offaly.

The Offaly County Spelling Bee at 11am in St Colman’s NS in Mucklagh will kick off this year’s proceedings.

The winner of the competition will be invited to take part in the provincial finals in June, which will be aired on the Tubridy show on 2FM.
