As we enter the week of the All-Ireland the last major event ahead of the final will be the 'Drive for Liam' quiz which as in previous years will be broadcast on KCLR to the forty-one centres throughout the county, plus one centre in Dublin. The quiz will start at 8.30pm sharp, please be at the venues and ready to go. A table of 4 costs €20. This is a wonderful oppertunity for all members of the GAA community to come together and prepare for the big day.
