The successful Boherlahan Quiz Team with County Chairman Michael Maher

There is one very important change regarding team events this year.

All team entries must be submitted to the County Board by this Saturday, May 14th at 11.59pm. The difference this year is all players must be named at this stage.

Therefore all managers asked to put their thinking caps on and submit full details of each competitor, name, address D-O-B to their Area Secretary immediately.
