KNOW YOUR PARISH
It’s time to get your teams together as we will be hosting our second ever Know Your Parish Quiz this Sat 8th of November.
Last years event was an outstanding success and more importantly a great nights craic. You still have time to brush up on your local knowledge as we set out to see which townland will take home the coveted crown in 2014.
Will the brain boxes of Ballynahona retain the title? How many ex school teachers will Terence Colhoun surround himself with this year in attempt to win the trophy?
With no stag party to distract him this time, can Ali Farren come out on top?
We would urge someone from each townland to get their team of 4 together in the coming weeks as its sure to be a night not to be missed.
For more information, contact Pat Mc Laughlin on 087 2030115.
