Not long left to vote for ‘After the Fact’

January 28, 2013 in Podcast, Quiz Show

Perhaps you haven’t heard but After the Fact, the quiz show I host on Claremorris Community Radio, was last Autumn nominated for a European Podcast Award.

The (rather long-winded) award process is about to change stages this week. On February 1st, the public voting phase ends and the category shortlists will be announced. A judging panel will then review the remaining podcasts before the winners are announced during March sometime.

So, there are just a few days left to vote for After the Fact! * If you’d like to do so, please click on this link right here: Vote for After the Fact. **

Very busy week ahead

November 1, 2011 in Housekeeping

What a week I have ahead. Ok, thanks to the Public Holiday, it starts on a Tuesday but that will only result in it being even more crammed with stuff for me to do.

First off, I’m the host of tonight’s quiz in Gilligan’s, Claremorris.  As usual, the regular Tuesday night quiz kicks off around 10.30pm.  Please come on in if you’re anywhere near. I promise at least one round on Hallowe’en! 🙂

Tomorrow evening, I’ll be in the Claremorris Community Radio studios to record this week’s episode of After the Fact, our weekly quiz show that combines QI with Sesame Street.  Normally, as I’m sure you know, we do the show live on Thursday evenings at 7pm.  However, this week we can’t as I’m away.

Where will I be?  I’m part of the Irish team going to the European Quizzing Championship, which takes place in Bruges, Belgium, over this weekend.  If you’d like to find out more about the competition, please check out www.eqc2011.be. Of course, I’ll endevour to keep you all up-to-date on how the Irish team is getting on, right here on the site throughout the weekend.

It’s all very exciting but I do feel like I’ll be quite tired come next Monday!
