2009 Charity Quiz supporting ‘Friends of Michael Sobell House’ and ‘Teenage Cancer Trust’
The 2009 Charity Quiz was organised on a table basis with teams comprising three members. Each team sought to answer a set of ten questions over a range of categories within a prescribed time limit. There were eight series of questions together with a pictorial set amounting to an overall total of 120 questions.Twenty eight teams entered the competition, including two teams who had travelled to the event from Wicklow. Quizmaster for the event was Michael Mulvaney.The quiz was interspersed with a raffle which also contributed to the charity. Our gratitude goes to our Director of Sales (Raffle), Sean O’Halloran who cajoled and persuaded the attendees to part with some additional funds.At the end of nine rounds of forensic like examination, the top two positions were filled by the visiting teams from Wicklow. The winning trio comprised Stephen McNulty, Niall Esmonde and Colm Finnegan (pictured below). The evening raised a magnificent £840 for the designated Charities and a sincere thank you is extended to all who contributed to the success of the event by their attendance. The Club will top off the donation to a total of £1,000, with £500 being provided to each Charity.
Grateful thanks is also extended to those club members who have made donations, even though they were unable to be present on the night.
