Western Gaels hold successful Table Quiz

Western Gaels
Western Gaels Annual Table Quiz

Our annual table quiz which was held last Saturday night last was a brilliant success. There was another bumper crowd present with a total number of 55 tables competing for the top prize. After a very tight last few rounds it went all the way to a tie breaker with 3 teams level on 60 points after the 8 rounds. A further tiebreaker round of 5 questions could not separate the teams so it was down a sudden death question which eventually determined the winning table with the Devines coming out on top from the McGarry’s in 2nd place and Sampey’s in 3rd place.
There will be a full list of all team positions on our Facebook page soon.

The club extends its sincere thanks to all who supported the fundraiser on the night, to all our local businesses who sponsored over 24 prizes for the raffle (a full sponsor list will be available on the Facebook page ), to Brian and Joan (Into The West) for sponsoring the top prize of €250 and for their hospitality with food etc provided for all teams. Thanks also to our organising team who did a brilliant job in organising the event and who ensured it ran off very efficiently which included all our table collectors, checkers, counters, score keepers etc and to our MC and Quiz master Michael who did a great job all night.
