Fianna Fáil local election candidate Fintan Phelan invited friends and supporters to come and pit their wits against each other on Friday night as he held a quiz night at the Eire Og clubhouse.
Around 150 people took part on the night with quizmaster Eamon Ellis keeping the crowd on their toes with plenty of difficult and thought provoking questions. According to Fintan, the night was a great success and he says he has been blown away by the reaction he's received as a fresh young face on the local political scene.
'I'd like to thank everyone who made the quiz night possible, from those who sponsored prizes to everyone who came on the night,' said Fintan.
'I still can't believe the crowd that were there and the level of support I'm getting. It's just great to see so many in our community wanting to help a new young person break into politics. It's what we need here in Carlow, a fresh approach.'
