Exciting finish to Tipperary Supporters Club Fun Table Quiz

There was a tie break finish to the Tipperary Supporters Club Fun Table Quiz which was held last Friday 30 May in Pat Fox’s, Cashel; Tony Lowry’s, Tipperary Town and Noel Ryan’s, Thurles.  The Quiz was broadcast live on Tipperary Mid West Community Radio so it was one quiz in 3 venues!  Team 5 in Pat Fox’s and team 13 in Tony Lowry’s tied on 59 points out of 60.  On the tie break question, the team from Cashel won out with a line up of Seanie O’Donoghue, John O’Sullivan, Aiden Hynes and Robert White and scooped the overall first prize of 4 tickets for next Sunday’s Tipperary v Cork Munster SH Semi Final.  That team also won the lovely venue prize in Pat Fox’s of a weekend of accomodation and meals in the Best Western Eviston House Hotel, Killarney (see www.killarney-hotel.com).  Table 3 was second in Pat Fox’s and won 4 Tipperary Supporters Club golf umbrellas.

Table 13 in Tony Lowry’s won the venue prize of a Fourball round of golf in Dromoland Castle, Co Clare and the team was made up of Kevin Leahy, Pierce Donnellan, Séamus Ryan and Eddie Ryan.  Second place in that  venue went to team 3 who won 4 Tipperary Supporters Club golf umbrellas.  First prize in Noel Ryan’s of dinner for 4 in Inch House ( www.inchhouse.ie  ) to the value of €300 went to team 5 who were Shane Hennessey, Pat Healy, Murt Ryan and Frankie McGrath from Staptleton’s Pub in Loughmore.  Second place in that venue went to table 10 who won a meal for 4 in the Mitchell House Restaurant, Thurles.

Over the three venues more than 70 teams contributed to this fund raiser and had a great night’s entertainment with the brain teasers posed by quizmaster Matt Hurley, a Clonmel native.  As all expenses were sponsored or donated all the proceeds from tables and raffle tickets went to the fund raising effort.  The main sponsor was Matt and David Kavanagh of Tipperary Test and Tachograph Centre, Rosanna Road, Tipperary Town and we thank them for their generosity.  In addition there were numerous attractive raffle prizes which were kindly donated by the three venue hosts and by many other supportersincluding the following.
