Four teams have booked their place in the finals of the All County Quiz. The first qualifier was held in Smyths Siopa Ól, Ballinamore last Friday night and a very enjoyable and entertaining night was had by all.

Quiz master John Morrison (who is the quiz master for the full series) put a lot of work into preparing 10 intriguing rounds and the feedback afterwards was very positive. On the night the first 3 positions became apparent by round 7 however it was the battle for place number 4 that kept the remaining teams motivated as only 4 points separated all teams for the last place. By round 10 all four places were filled as the Tie Breaker questions were withheld for another day.

Congratulations go to Outeragh Gaels, Carrigallen Celtic, Drumreilly Rafa and Ladies with a Willie on making it to the final on Dec 4th in Coxs Steak House, Dromod.

This Friday its over to Gurns in Manorhamilton for Qualifier number 2 followed by round 3 in Paddys, Carrick on the following Friday.

So if you couldnt make it to Ballinamore last Friday you still have a chance to get to the final which has €1,000 in prizes.
