Friday, 22 November 2019,  9:00 - 11:00

The annual Emmett Byrne Memorial Quiz will take place  at Doyle’s Bar Camlough on Friday 22nd November.

The Quiz, in memory of the much respected Camlough resident, will commence at 9pm and the organisers Camloch  Heritage Society extend a warm invitation to all.

Emmett, a schoolteacher who died in April 2009, was very active in many aspects in the life of the local community. He had a great knowledge of, and a love for, national and local history and the Irish language and culture. He held the position of secretary of the Camloch Heritage Society up until his death and had been a former secretary of Shane O’Neill’s GAA Club and the Camloch Seamus Steele Cumann.

Over the years proceeds from the nights events have gone to charity and this year all monies raised will go to Pat McGinn who is running the London 2020 Marathon to fundraise  for the Southern Area Hospice, 

Quiz Master for the night will be Peter Lynch.

Last year’s Quiz winners and holders of the Emmett Byrne Memorial Quiz Shield, Shane O Neills Camloch are expected back to defend their title.
