On Wed 19th Oct at 8pm Myo's was at maximum quizzing capacity with 42 tables sold out. John and Fiona O'Kane had set the questions and Denis Courtney did the honours as Quiz Master for the evening.
Eight rounds of eight questions threw up a few difficulties for some. The quiz came to a nail-biting finish when even a tie-breaking round of 5 extra questions failed to separate the top two teams. It took one further (HARDER) question to decide the day. That question was regarding the length of the M50 between two given junctions. The victorious were:
WINNERS - TEAM 23:
Michelle Regan, Eimear Keane, Eoin Lysaght and Sean O'Donoghue
Cash prizes were presented by Evelyn Pender (Chairperson).
2nd Place: TEAM 13 - The Timoney Family - Conor, Enda, Emer and Trish.
3rd Place: TEAM 41: Nick Sheridan, Derek O'Brien, James Atkinson and Sam Griffin

Thank you to everyone who helped organise the night and especially those brave folks who came along and took part in the quiz. Lovely to see such a great cross section of the local community enjoying an evening together. And the fundraising effort was hugely successful with over €3,800 raised as a result of the event. Thank You all!
