Great Night at our Table Quiz

Post date: Feb 5, 2013 6:45:58 PM

Twenty six tables of eager contestants packed into Dooley's on Friday night to battle it out for some modest prizes and the bragging rights. Caoimh Davoren played quizmaster through eight rounds of questions with a strong local flavour. As the scores were counted there was a long round of prizegiving in the raffle, as nearly 20 prizes were generously given. Patrons were so supportive in buying raffle tickets that all the tickets were sold out before all were catered for.

In the end, two teams, one led by Noel Daley and the other made up of the wiser Davoren clan, tied for first place on 67/81 each. In the tie break, Noel Daley's crew demonstrated a superior knowledge of chemistry to take the top prize.

Of course, the main purpose of the night was to raise some funds for the club and we are delighted that a little over €1400 was raised so enjoyably. Thanks to Caoimh for organising it all, his minder, Seosamh, to Megan, Ailbhe, Aine and Claire for keeping score, Niall for collecting the money, all those who generously donated prizes, Con for the loan of the shop with some tasty bites thrown in and of course all those who turned up to support.

Thanks to everyone again!
