ALL COUNTY TABLE QUIZ
Join in Tipperary’s biggest ever All County Table Quiz. Tipperary County GAA Board are targeting 1000 tables in the local heats of their all county table quiz being held on this Friday, March 15. On that night Fran Curry will call out the questions live on Tipp FM at 9pm to quiz enthusiasts all over the county who will convene in their local venues. Barron’s Pub is the local venue in New Inn.
In order to get organised, it would be a great help if everyone competing in the quiz could be seated at around 8.30pm.
€40 per table. All individual €10 entries will be entered in a special draw to be held on County Final night with an All Ireland Weekend plus match tickets as first prize and a runner up prize of two Tipp Club Season tickets.
Local winners from the heats will go forward to the Grand County Final being held in The Dome, Semple Stadium on Thursday, March 28, where the outright winning table will receive four tickets to New York. Clubs must have a minimum of five tables to send forward a winning team to the county final with the added incentive if they get over 15 tables they can send forward two winners and three for over 25.

In second place Stephen Quirke, Sarah Quirke, Aoife Mulcahy and Donal Mulcahy, third place David Power, Dan Dowling, Michael Halpin and Tommy O’Dwyer.

A big thank you to all who sponsored prizes for the raffle: Bulmers, Senator Windows, Purcells Shop, Donal Moloney. Great credit is due to all involved, especially MC on the night Karl McHugh, Gerry and Phil Ryan and all the hard working Rockwell Rovers players committee.
