Another Tuesday, another visit to Gilligan’s Pub, Claremorris.  It’s the nature of this quiz to combine random teams with a random quizmaster, so one’s experience can vary radically from week to week. I’ve had a great time there on my first two nights. Unfortunately, this week’s quiz wasn’t as enjoyable – for a number of reasons.

Before I get to them, I also have to admit that I don’t know if I was on the winning team this week. To explain, I received a phone call from my better half just before the start of the last round, telling me that our daughter wasn’t well and asking me to hurry home. I explained this to my team-mates and quickly looked over the final round (pictures, see below) with them before dashing out the door.  We had been in second place at half-way and I don’t think we had an exceptional second half so I doubt we were in the winners’ enclosure. Then again, you never know!

Our quizmaster (quizmistress actually) was freshly returned from a holiday in Spain and she certainly had recharged the batteries. She flew through each round.
