Limerick Civic Trust has announced a new fundraising event that will take place entirely online. The Virtual Table Quiz is set to happen on Thursday, May 28 at 8 pm for anyone to join.

The organisation is a self-funding charity that aims to take on projects and initiatives to better Limerick’s environment. They work with local authorities, state agencies and all of Limerick’s commercial, community, industrial and professional life. Everything these groups do ensures a more prosperous future for the city.

With Phase 1 of the quarantine period in play, more people are able to see each other, but that does not mean pushing the limitations. In order to maintain social distancing regulations and allow people to socialise, Limerick Civic Trust came up with the idea for the Virtual Table Quiz. 

The recently announced Local Champion for Limerick City is continuing its efforts to combat the pandemic through outreach and community support.

People can enter in for only €10 per person as a single player, but teams of four are encouraged to enter. All those who entered in by themselves will be placed in a team with others on the night. It functions as a great way to not only pass the time but get to know more people in the Limerick area and have fun.

The quiz will happen over a Zoom call with all the participants. After having the teams settled, named and ready to go, one person from each team will record all the answers and email them to the host after each round. More instructions will be provided on the night, so there is no need to worry about anything. 

All proceeds will support the work that Limerick Civic Trust does in Limerick City – maintaining and restoring historic street features, monuments, and buildings, and their project at 2 Pery Square – the People’s Museum of Limerick. 

Dr. Rose Anne White, manager at the Trust and curator of its museum, wrote a lovely message on the Limerick Civic Trust website saying, “Grab a drink, a snack, three of your cleverest pals, and join us for a night of fun from your own home. Limerick Civic Trust needs your help to bridge our fundraising gap during this pandemic, and what better way to support the vital work we do on the historic streets of Limerick than enjoying a night of friendly banter and competition with your friends!” 

Everyone is welcome to take part. For queries and bookings, please email [email protected]
