Join some Connacht stars and local rugby clubs Corinthans and Galwegians this Friday in Monroe’s Live on Dominick Street, Galway, where you can see the battle go from pitch to pub in the ‘Question of Sport’ challenge.
The first in a planned series of rugby roadshows – hosted by Connacht Rugby – will see popular rugby stars from the province go to head-to-head in a series of rugby-related questions to see who claims the title of Connacht’s most knowledgeable club team.
The first of the Connacht clubs to take up the challenge are local rivals Corinthians and Galwegians who will battle it out to see who knows more about their beloved sport, team and club history.
Connacht legend Johnny O’Connor heads up the Corinthians team to compete against the province’s captain Gavin Duffy and his club Galwegians.
Quizmasters, Galwegian James ‘Sloppy’ Heaslip and veteran Corinthian Paddy Flynn will take the teams through various quiz rounds like ‘What Happened Next’, ‘Picture Board’, ‘Home or Away’, ‘Mystery Guest’ and ‘On the Buzzer’.
There is also the opportunity to take the rules of the field to the quiz table where teams can bring on subtitutes to better their chances of winning.
With the 2011/12 rugby season nearing its end, this is a fun opportunity for supporters to meet and mingle with Connacht players and have the chance to win some signed memorabilia in a top class raffle on the night.
The first 500 people through the door will receive a complimentary pint of Heineken to help kick off the night and toast to the world of rugby. Party the night away with two live bands taking the celebrations into the early hours of the morning.
Doors open at 9pm. Tickets for the sports night cost just €;10 and are available to buy online here, or at the door on the night.
Any monies raised on the night will be invested in the development of rugby in the province. Be there for the rare chance to hang out with the entire Connacht squad in an enjoyable social setting.
