A novel table quiz in the Home Rule Club, John’s Quay, Kilkenny on Thursday night was a resounding success.
It was novel because there was no entry fee, no raffle and ‘all in all’ it was a very light-hearted affair.
As well as many club regulars, members of Moira’s set-dancing group and several snooker players all helped greatly to swell the numbers.
Chief organiser of the night, Richard O’Connor brought along a group of his fellow St. Canice’s Credit Union staff and all seemed to enjoy themselves immensely.
Winners on the night came from the ranks of the ‘snooker room’ brigade doing extremely well, scoring 37 from a possible 40.
It was decided that the quiz be held on the last Wednesday of every month with quiz master Richard O’Connor compiling the questions for the next session.
At the conclusion of the next quiz well-known music group ‘Memory Lane’ have volunteered their services to conclude what is hoped will be another enjoyable night.
The Home Rule Club has been serving the people of Kilkenny for well over 100 years and there is always a warm welcome for new members.
The annual fee is a pittance and there are facilities for snooker, darts, music sessions, cards and a TV room for members to view all sports.
It’s the last surviving social club in the city and hopefully it will continue to thrive for many years to come.
Sporting bodies or charitable groups who may wish to organise a fundraising table quiz, cabaret or whatever are invited to contact any member of the committee , drop into the club or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
