Pub Trivia Nights to raise money for local youth Gaelic Football programs return to Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle on Thursday Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. and will continue on the third Thursday of the month into the spring.

Openings are still available for teams of up to eight people. Each player is asked to contribute $5 per game. Games consist of seven categories with 10 questions each. Monthly prizes will be awarded, and a Grand Prize will be presented to the team with the highest cumulative score at the end of the season. For more information, contact Johnny Connolly at

Gaelic Football can be described as a mixture of soccer and rugby, although it predates both of those games. It’s a little like Australian Rules (which evolved from it). Gaelic Football is played on a pitch about the same size as a rugby field with similar goalposts. The ball used in Gaelic Football is round, slightly smaller than a soccer ball. It can be carried in the hand for a distance of four steps and can be kicked or hand-passed, a striking motion with the hand or fist.
