72 parents and friends of Taney made up the 18 teams that contested the Taney Table Quiz 2018. Resident quiz maestro Eoin Pearson tested the knowledge limits with questions of current affairs, sport, literature, geography, entertainment, history, general knowledge and the sensory music and picture rounds.
The ‘A-team’ emerged victorious, with Ross Gillanders, Matt Jones, Rob Fox and Julian Hinds, while the other winners to be congratulated were:
2nd place – The Slippery Slopes with John Armstrong, Patrick Passmore, Heather Strong & Mervyn Ellis
3rd place – AKEA with Andrew & Elaine Bowers & Karl & Alan Stewart
4th place – 4 Guinness Please with Peter Squires, Colin Woods, Patsy McCaughey & Philip Beattie
The table sales and raffle raised just shy of €1,500 and we’re extremely grateful to all those who attended and gave so generously. Our thanks also goes to parents Conor Lloyd, Elaine Platt, Ana Kerr and Colin Woods for sponsoring some of the raffle prizes. The signed Ireland rugby jersey was won by Joshua Ellis from Ms Warren’s 3rd Class, and our gratitude extends to her for organising this amazing prize.
After 4 years behind the microphone and with his son’s departure from school, Eoin is passing the baton to Ross Gillanders who has very kindly offered to be next year’s quiz connoisseur.
