First (Annual) IYF UK Sports Quiz Night

Thursday the 28th of March saw in the Irish Youth Foundation (UK)’s inaugural quiz night – ‘A Question of Irish Sport’ – and we were not disappointed! It was a brilliant night celebrating moments in Irish and global sport, on a video-based and timed quiz on our big screen in the London Irish Centre in Camden.

A big crowd from across the London Irish community turned out to fill 21 tables and over 160 people banded together in teams of 8, as they competed to show off their sporting knowledge. The host of popular podcast ‘An Irishman Abroad’, Jarlath Regan, did a wonderful job as the host as we raised thousands of pounds for the charity, while reliving the excitement of some of sport’s greatest moments.

The winner on the night was Semple Stadium – now better known on the quiz circuit as the Old Betfairians. Congrats on your trophy, bottles of bubbles and bragging rights as the champions!

We looking forward to seeing everyone back on the starting line for our 2020 quiz. Plenty of time to train up on your sporting knowledge…
