TheJournal.ie's Weekend Pub Quiz part three (a you-know-what free zone)

Do you have what it takes?

IT’S ANOTHER SATURDAY night, so that means another pub quiz on TheJournal.ie.

We can’t go the pub right now, but that doesn’t mean the noble tradition of pub quizzing needs to fall by the wayside.

You can even make this your evening quiz over a zoom call with pals.

There’s five categories this week – geography, sports, TV, history and then some general knowledge.

(And you can also find here parts one and two).

Best of luck.
