Result! Big Bluefin Table Quiz

We had a brilliant night at O’Donoghue‘s pub in Kilcolgan at the family table quiz! Team “Blue Brains” took the top prize with Anthony and Hannah Boyle, Nessa Mangan and friends on the team. A huge congratulations to all our super smart swimmers, parents, coaches and friends who participated last night!

Very special thanks goes out to Mary O’Donoghue who set the quiz and so graciously hosted us at her pub; to Madeline for designing and printing our poster and to Paul Gunning for providing the sound equipment. We would also like to thank all the parents who supplied spot prizes for the raffle, and especially to Helen Van de Beek for providing the snacks, setting up tables and organising our successful evening!

Roll on the Big Bluefin Family Bingo Night on Saturday November 9th!!!
