FORMER Kilkenny Rose Orla O’Shea will be part of a team who will go head to head against a team of publicans from Galwayon television show Who Knows Ireland Best? this Friday night.

IFTA nominated television production company, Big Mountain Productions, is on a roll at the moment as yet another original format devised and made by the company has hit screens on RTÉ One. Presented by Derek Mooney, the new game show Who Knows Ireland Best? will run for six weeks.

One thousand Irish inhabitants, of every age, from all corners of the country, were asked 100 probing questions about everything from their manners and morals to their beliefs and behaviours such as: have you ever stolen money out of the Trocaire box; and what percentage of the country knows all the words to the national anthem?

This new six-part series then sees two teams, with each having contestants of the same occupation, pit their wits against each other. This week’s show sees a team of former Roses, one of whom is from Kilkenny, go head-to-head against a team of publicans from Galway.

Who Knows Ireland Best? airs on RTÉ One on Friday nights at 8.30pm.
