The Quiz in Aid of Milford Hospice



Quiz in Aid of Milford Hospice is renowned city wide as being the most sensational and utterly hilarious Charity Event of the year is back. Back to test your brain and your sense of humour.

Hosted by Mike Finn and Myles Breen, it is the night that has it all; great prizes and the chance to support Limerick’s Milford Hospice.

Known amongst table quizzes as the one with ‘bells and whistles’, the quiz is not all about the question. Previous quiz challenges have been Blind Date, and the by now Infamous Compose a Limerick Competition.  So even if your reading habits are a little more ‘National Enquirer’ than ‘Irish Times’ you can battle it out with your head held high.  

But you’re not going away empty handed! You’re taking away with you  a Blankety Blank cheque book and pen or a selection of prizes donated generously by local businesses.


“The generosity of local businesses over the years has never ceased to amaze me.  Even during hard times when the pressure was on, the Limerick businesses and organisations came up trumps,” said Myles Breen. 

Music maestro Dave Irwin will, once more, be on hand with musical clues. This year, he has concocted a musical brain teaser clinically tested to leave the most seasoned radio junkies and music fans languishing in musical limbo.

Even if you are more Blankety Blank than Mastermind, even if the only subject you excel at is the Kardashian Family Tree, don’t worry just grab some friends and come along for some fun and to support the cause. After all, this is the only quiz since the Signing of the Limerick Treaty that has been known to have a Flash Mob.

 On Thursday, February 18 at 8pm in the Ballroom of Pery’s Hotel Glentworth Street. Tables will be in groups of four and entry is €10 per head.
