Here are the answers to the (tremendous amount of) questions posed earlier in De ja voodoo.

My mate Ger is next week’s quiz master at Gilligan’s but I’m afraid I won’t be there to report on his quiz.  A ticket to next week’s big European Championship qualifier between Ireland and Armenia has come my way so, obviously, I’ll be in Dublin on Tuesday night.

Hopefully, the Ireland team won’t catch the grabbing-defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory bug that’s going round.

The week is but halfway through and already I have done two quizzes.  Whilst one was in Galway (and featured movies, some music and more movies) and the other was in Claremorris (and featured our return to Gilligan’s Bar), they had some striking similarities.

None more obvious than the fact that, in both of them, my team were in a leading position at the start of the final round before throwing it all away.  Of course, nemesis rounds do happen from time to time but they seem particularly cruel when they occur in round 10*.

As a post on the movie quiz will require some work (stills and audio clips etc), I’m going to take the easy way out and report on these in reverse order.  Thus, let’s start with the opening evening of this year’s Gilligan’s Tuesday quiz night.

Good morning all.  I know I said at the end of my most recent post that the answers would arrive “tomorrow morning” but, sometimes, life gets in the way of blogging.

You see, the reason I knew on Thursday last that I would have to post up the answers on Friday morning or else they wouldn’t be up for days is that my brother got married last Friday afternoon.  We had a great time, thanks for asking.  However, the day ended up being so busy that I simply didn’t have time to get to a computer.

Mind you, I did manage to squeeze in my weekly show on Claremorris Community Radio so the Friday Five Trivia are present and correct.  Albeit, they were posted on a Monday!

In fact, the end is here.  After eight months of going almost every Tuesday night, the Quiz Night in Gilligan’s, Claremorris, went on Summer holidays  this week.

As befitted the week that was in it, the quiz had an end-of-year feel to it with free food on offer and a free raffle also.  In this I managed to win a bottle of wine! Alas, that was the only victory that came our way as we were defeated by two points in the quiz.

This was hosted by Eddie, my old buddy from the Irish Independent photo back in January.  He put on a nice quiz, illuminated by some of his more colloquial pronunciations!

I shall miss him, and the rest of the Gilligan’s crew, throughout this upcoming Summer recess.
