The42 Table Quiz in aid of the Sinéad Lowndes Fund (24 April)
The comment section talks a good game but let's see what you really know.
On Wednesday, 24 April we're hosting a special table quiz in D2 on Dublin's Harcourt Street to help raise funds for Sinéad Lowndes.
Mother-of-one Sinéad was recently diagnosed with a rare liver condition just weeks after her wedding. She'll probably need a liver transplant and partial bowel transplant and will need to relocate to the UK for a year or so.A fundraising drivehas received great support since being launched.
As well as being the pride of your families and WhatsApp groups, we'll have great prizes for the quiz winners as well as spot prizes and some nice The42 gear to give away.
Doors are at 7pm, and don't worry, we'll have the Manchester derby on the big screen throughout. Tables of five are €50 with all proceeds going to Sinéad, a sister of a former colleague of ours.
Space is limited so to guarantee your place by booking here, nerds!
