LAST WEEKEND SAW some of Ireland’s top quizzers head to the Celtic Nations Quiz Championships in Edinburgh. 

A team of 25 from Ireland competed at a number of events – in both pairs and as individuals – with Ireland coming second overall. 

The Irish quizzers last won first place in 2016.

The competition sees well-known quizzers including chasers like Mark ‘The Beast’ Labett, representing Wales, and Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegarty representing Scotland, from The Chase. 

So in light of that, we had a quiz champion from the Irish Quiz Organisation design a quiz for TheJournal.ie.
