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.

Well known Millstreet man John Tarrant has succeeded in winning a place in the last eight of the GAA’s All-Ireland 125 Quiz. The semi-final was hosted by the ‘Memory Man’ Jimmy Magee on August 28th last, and John who is no stranger to quizzes (Scór Senior, table quizzes etc) excelled and qualified for the final which will be held on Friday 18 September in the GAA Museum in Croke Park.
John has been involved in sport and journalism for years now. He is PRO with Millstreet and Duhallow and a columnist and photographer with the Corkman newspaper, as well as working a full time job!
If he wins he will make a guest appearance on the Sunday Game on RTE2 that same night, a trophy, tickets to the All Ireland Football final amongst other prizes. So best of luck to John from everyone here.
Update 24th Sept 09: Unfortunately John did not succeed in the final of the GAA 125 quiz, but well done regardless on a remarkable achievement.
