Saturday saw us hold the September Open in our usual Dublin venue, the Addison Lodge. The questions on the day were those of the British Quiz Open run by the BQA. The questions were tough, but fair play to the BQA for a healthy smattering of Irish-themed questions in the mix.
Saturday 1st June saw us host the Irish leg of the World Quizzing Championships in Dublin, and what a day it turned out to be! 38 quizzers sat down to take on the 240 questions over two one-hour papers on 8 different topics. This was double the number that sat it in Athlone last year so we are very pleased with the increase in numbers.
