Pub Trivia Nights at Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle to Raise Money for Youth Gaelic Football Starting October 21

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 jconnolly71@comcast.net.

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.
