At the Armagh Scór County Finals the Sarsfields Quiz Team won out after a tense and exciting tie-break. Sarsfields and Silverbridge were all square at the end of the quiz and an initial tie-break failed to separate the sides. The breakthrough for Sarsfields came in the final question of this tie-break. The script had been written for an exciting finale and The Sarsfields team came up with the correct final answer which was in fact the Dublin rock band ‘The Script’. It can’t be confirmed if Harry Gormley is a fan of The Script but he will certainly remember their name in future. The Sarsfields Quiz Team was Sean McAlinden, Francis Reynolds and Harry Gormley. Sarsfields secretary Sean McAlinden had great praise for his team. Sean commented that Harry and Francis had come up with answers to some very difficult questions. It was Francis who had come up with the final winning answer of The Script demonstrating his knowledge of modern Irish culture. Sean went on to say that he was delighted that Harry had won a first county title, having given so much support for Scór over thirty years. This is Sarsfields first All County title in the quiz. We wish the team all the best for the Ulster Scór Semi-Final, which will be held in Silverbridge on Saturday 26th February.
