It was the second of the Autumnal series of quizzes in The King’s Head bar in Galway and a fun crowd turned up. About half of them came in fancy dress which was lovely as it definitely added to the atmosphere. The other tables, I’m reliably informed, “didn’t get the memo”.
There was also a contest for the best team name. There were some strong, Halloween-based contenders for this title such as Hex Factor, The Tell-tale Fart, Brain Dead and, probably my favourite, Stephen King’s Head. However, the winner was none of these. It was also a name that had nothing to do with Halloween. The winners, by acclamation during the half-time score announcement, were “We’re only here because we haven’t got a Saorview box.”
The questions did, however, have a Hallowe’en slant. I’ve included a selection for you to try at the end of the post. There’s also a picture round and an audio one too. I hope you realise how spoiled you are.
Picture round (1 point each for the actor and the character they are portraying):

Update: answers here.
* I’ve given up on Soundcloud. Its piracy checker decided it didn’t like me playing some of these 30 second extracts.
