Wicklow and District Lions Club held the grand final of their quiz nights on Wednesday night with representatives of all 24 local groups and clubs receiving their cheques at the end of the night.

The popular weekly quizzes started way back in November last year and have continued every week since then, with a short-break over the Christmas period.

The winning team on the night was made up of Michael Garland, Maurice Ramsay, Colum Ring and Sarah McCartin.

The team led by Shay Jones finished as runner-ups.

Members of Wicklow Lions Club also visited and entertained the patients in St Colman's Hospital in Rathdrum on Sunday afternoon last.

Each year the club organises a little party for any elderly members of the community staying in St Colman's.

As well as entertainers from the Lions, there was no shortage of excellent singers from St Colman's.

Lions President, Tony Lyons, thanked all those directly involved and said the local club is honoured to organise this little get together every year in Rathdrum.

Wicklow and District Lions Club is a non profit organisation where members donate their time to the goals and causes of the Club without personal reward.

They meet twice a month, on the first and third Wednesday, in the Grand Hotel, Wicklow town, at 8 p.m..

The organisation consists of over 30 local men and women.
