RTE Quiz

Busker Abu, the show on TG4 which was to find the best Busker in Ireland earlier this year was a lot of fun.

Spring Tides, the Decibellas and Michael Thomas, the American who played at bot the DylanFest and BeatlesFest, went down to Dublin to take part in their heats.

They all did well. There was eight in each heat and only the winner would go through to the semi finals.

Spring Tides made the Last Two Sing-off but lost out on the three judges vote.

The Decibellas went even closer, again making the sing-off and only losing to a split decision with one judge voting for them.

Michael Thomas went even better and won his heat.

RTE Quiz Show

Now the same production company that was responsible for Busker Abu are doing a quiz  show on RTE and have been in touch asking if we can send them some quiz teams to take part in the auditions to get on the show.

According to one of the show’s Producers “We’re in our first production week and are looking for contestants to take part. The show will be aired on Sunday nights, 6.30pm, RTE One during the month of December.

“It’s an entertaining quiz show where our teams will be having the craic while trying to win a luxury holiday.

“We’re looking for 3 teams of 3 per show, and we’re producing 4 shows.

“Teams can be made up of friends and/ or family members. They have to get on with each other and be willing to have a bit of craic.

“They’ll be tested on their knowledge of past decades (80’s, 90’s, Noughties and Now) via visual and audio clips from the archives”.

That sounds like great fun and a chance to win a luxury holiday too.

Quiz Teams Wanted for RTE Show

The Producer asks “Would you know of anyone who might be interested in taking part? Or perhaps you could run an ad in Craic On to let folk in Donegal and surrounding areas know about it?”

What we are going to do is to hold a registration night in Rosatos next Friday night, from 9:30pm, along with a practice quiz when we will ask questions about the eighties, nineties, noughties and now.

Everyone is welcome to come along. It will be teams of three. We’ll register you for the quiz show audition and you can stay for the quiz if you like.

Quiz Show Auditions

At the moment they are holding auditions in Dublin, Cork and Galway and one other location to be announced. It will depend on where the most entries come from.

For Busker Abu they came all the way up to Letterkenny for the auditions as we sent them quite a few entries.

Hopefully, if a good number of people apply from around here, they’ll hold a quiz audition up here.

If you are interested in taking part get in touch with me at info@craicon.com or simply come along to the quiz next Friday and register there.
