The senior panel of footballers organised a table quiz last night, Friday 27th July, in St. Mary’s Hall and the evening was a huge success and raised a considerable amount of money due to the generosity of the local community. Thirteen teams totalling over 60 members participated and the players have asked me to extend a sincere THANK YOU to everybody who supported and attended the quiz.
Many thanks to Ollie McQuillan, who was a great quiz master on the night, and put a huge amount of effort into preparing great questions, although I do have a gripe to pick regarding the answer to a certain refereeing question but we will talk about that some other time! Siobhan McQuillan was on hand and managed and checked the answers and looked after the scoreboard and thank you to her for her work.
After ten very interesting rounds of questions two teams finished with an impressive ninety-two points out of one hundred. After a very tense tie-breaker the quiz was won by Elaine & Anthony Tate, Breda Cleary and Cormac McFadden and they generously donated back first prize back to the club and the runners-up included Emer & Jimmy McGeough, Martina & Paddy McKeown and likewise they also donated their prize back to the fund raiser and very well done to the winners and everybody that took part.
Finally, on behalf of the club I would also like to thank the following companies and individuals who sponsored spot prizes or made private donations. Gerry Colye, Paddy Lynch, Cait O’Hart, Maple Bar, Loughbawn Hotel, Ann Carroll, Pauric Reilly and H&B Cootehill.
