19-05-2016 PA – St. Catherine’s Quiz Night Tomorrow; Wonderful Raffle Prizes; Trivia Fact No.3


Dear Parents,


Hopefully you are all aware that the St Catherine’s annual Quiz Night takes place Tomorrow at 8pm. To reward our attentive email audience even further, we would like to share another few little-known fact about St. Catherine’s. A wise woman once said  that knowledge is power and she was tight … especially in a quiz!


Did you Know???


Fact No. 3: The River Poddle runs under Donore Avenue


Donore Avenue was widened at the turn of the last century by culverting the Poddle which ran alongside the avenue. You can still see the Poddle in the White Swan Business Centre (with their permission!). The river runs underground from there until it joins the Liffey near the Clarence Hotel on Wellington Quay.


So … now you’re a little better informed on local history. I think you know when that fact might come in handy!!



Tickets Going Fast – so get there early!!!



Advance tickets sales have been brisk this week. We’re well past half way to our 50 team limit so there is a chance that we will sell out of tickets at the door tomorrow evening. There will be a last chance for advance ticket purchase tomorrow. If you are planning to buy tickets at the door, please do arrive well ahead of time to avoid disappointment.


Get there early even if you have tickets.


We will be starting the quiz at 8 but you’ll need to get your table number, your answer sheets, and a table to sit at before we can start. You may want to get some drinks before we kick off also – so please arrive in plenty of time tomorrow night!


Don’t forget about our Raffle!


We’ll be holding our usual raffle tomorrow evening with really great prizes on offer. Tickets will be sold at the door and during the intervals. The prizes up for grabs include:

  • Lots of Lunch & Dinner Vouchers
  • Lots of Hampers and vouchers from local shops
  • Pairs of tickets for Driving Miss Daisy @ The Gaiety
  • Pair of tickets to any show @ the Abbey Theatre
  • Family photo shootwith digital copies
  • Voucher for Top Dublin Hair Salon
  • Game of Thrones T-Shirts
  • Luxury (we’re talking Bayliss & Harding) gift sets
  • Magazine Subscriptions

We would remind you to book your babysitter now but we believe they are as rare as hen’s teeth in the Dublin 8 area!!
