On October 24, the Irish Club host their first on-campus event of the semester in Avenue Commons. During this, students were presented with a slideshow of multiple choice questions and had to pick the best answer for each of the six categories.

The three contestants with the most correct answers each won their own $25 gift card. With 22 out of 30 correct answers, Samantha Dwyer ’19 won first place with Carissa Owens ’19 placing second and Amanda Perez ’19 in third.

Although the three winners didn’t know all of the answers, they had already known certain facts about Irish culture.

“I learned some from family and Irish friends.” Dwyer stated.

Second and third place winners, Owens and Perez both learned certain aspects of Ireland’s history through their time in the country as well as the Irish Identity: Literature and Culture class that they take together.

While the winners had known about some facts beforehand, the Irish Trivia Night had taught the contestants new things about Gaelic phrases and Irish culture.
