The Table Quiz that took place on Friday 30th January in the Wallis Arms was a great success. The purpose of the evening was to raise money to help cover the travel and accommodation costs of six 5th year students who are going to Lourdes at Easter as helpers with the IHCPT – The Irish Pilgrimage Trust (€650/head). Thirty two teams took part in the quiz and along with the raffle a total of €1894 was raised, which is fantastic.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the event and helped in any way to make the quiz a success. Thanks especially to the Wallis Arms for providing the back room free of charge and to John Tarrant for devising excellent questions once again.
