We’re all off to Edinburgh

April 26, 2013 in Quizzes

Edinburgh-royal mileThe first-ever Celtic Nations Quizzing Championship takes place this weekend and will see a team featuring some of Ireland’s top quizzers travelling to Edinburgh to take on the best of what Scotland and Wales have to offer.

I’m lucky enough to be on the team for this event and I’m really looking forward to it. 14 Irish quizzers are taking part in this event, which will last through all of Saturday and half of Sunday. A series of A, B and C team matches will take place (four v four) as well as an individual quiz before a final rankings table will reveal which country is the weekend’s champion.

The two days will also feature a social team quiz and a celebrity challenge, in which a team of TV quiz stars, including Barry Simmons (Eggheads) and Anne Hegerty (The Chase), will take on the winners of a local quiz contest.

It promises to be a great weekend and, of course, I’ll keep you abreast of how we all get on right here on the site. You can also keep an eye on the IQO Facebook page.

The Irish team: Micheál Coyne, Michelle Coyne, Derek Cray, Lorcan Duff, Paddy Duffy, Padraic Fanning, John Groarke, David Lea, Dave McBryan, David Murphy, John Nolan, Colm O’Sullivan, John O’Sullivan and Ger Slattery.
