Last Friday we had a quiz in Inniskeen for Pieta House and
thanks to everyone who came or donated because they couldn't make it, it was a
huge success and very enjoyable. There turned out to be a number of
events in the area that night and we appreciate that some people missed out on
other events to be there, we really are grateful.
Thank you again to everyone who took part, you were all very good not to laugh too much at my accent and play along with my pronunciation of the place-names of Monaghan. In return, we hope we put on an enjoyable quiz for you with the right mix of headscratchers and sitters. Congratulations to all the prize winners in the raffle too and thanks very much to Michael at Magee's XL, Hughie and Deborah at McNello's Bar, O'Neill's Filling Station, Jimmy Green's Carwash, Noelle Luckie, Olive McHugh and Cavallino's Restaurant in Carrickmacross for the prizes and support, hope the Prosecco and biscuits went down a treat! Thanks again to McNello’s for hosting on the night and thanks to Olive, Malachy and Maurice for helping us run the show. Special mention has to go to Isabel Kieran for the distribution, collection and marking of the answers sheets, we literally couldn’t have done it without her.
We enjoyed it so much, we reckon we might do it again, so keep your eye on what we get up to next and make sure you learn your temperature scales, Game of Thrones references and the surnames of U2!
