What a week I have ahead. Ok, thanks to the Public Holiday, it starts on a Tuesday but that will only result in it being even more crammed with stuff for me to do.

First off, I’m the host of tonight’s quiz in Gilligan’s, Claremorris.  As usual, the regular Tuesday night quiz kicks off around 10.30pm.  Please come on in if you’re anywhere near. I promise at least one round on Hallowe’en! 🙂

Tomorrow evening, I’ll be in the Claremorris Community Radio studios to record this week’s episode of After the Fact, our weekly quiz show that combines QI with Sesame Street.  Normally, as I’m sure you know, we do the show live on Thursday evenings at 7pm.  However, this week we can’t as I’m away.

Where will I be?  I’m part of the Irish team going to the European Quizzing Championship, which takes place in Bruges, Belgium, over this weekend.  If you’d like to find out more about the competition, please check out www.eqc2011.be. Of course, I’ll endevour to keep you all up-to-date on how the Irish team is getting on, right here on the site throughout the weekend.

It’s all very exciting but I do feel like I’ll be quite tired come next Monday!

Dear readers, sorry if I have been a bit sparing with the blog posts in the last week.  I have been busy preparing for the start of a new quiz show I am hosting on Claremorris Community Radio.  It’s called After the Fact and it’s broadcast on Thursday evenings at 7pm.

The first episode went out last Thursday and it’s now available online via the Claremorrisfm account on mixcloud.com.  Alas, I haven’t yet found a way of embedding mixcloud files directly into this site so the best I can do is point you in the direction of the specific programme. I hope you enjoy it!

Might come in handy someday…

Safe and soundOver there somewhere ( —-> ) you should see the “Might come in handy…” box.  I’m going to update this weekly with a handy quiz fact.

However, I haven’t yet found out how I can do that using the posting system here on WordPress (if anyone knows how, please leave a comment) so it’s basically just a text box I edit by hand.

With that in mind, I’ve created this entry, which will serve as an archive for all past facts.  You don’t need to click “more…” on this post – just be safe in the knowledge that it will always be here if you feel the need to search for a fact that you’re positive you saw but can’t quite remember.
