February 9, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

After three months of attending Tuesday Quiz Night in Gilligan’s Bar, Claremorris, it was finally my turn to be quiz master last night.

There was a good crowd in, with several newcomers padding out the table numbers to eight. Perhaps they heard about the quiz somewhere in the last week? 🙂

Obviously I can’t produce the usual list of questions I missed so, instead, I’ll give you a selection of questions and post the picture rounds.

Hope you enjoy them!
