A fun table quiz will take place in the King’s Head on Monday (September 24 ) at 8pm, the proceeds of which will benefit Galway’s ‘Man on the Bike’ Liam Cullinane.

Quizmaster John Nolan is going back to his school days and all questions will be the type that participants used to know when they were younger - remember the difference between an adverb and an adjective? Who was Pythagoras and was he any good at long division? Can you even spell Modh Coinniollach?

All proceeds from the night will be donated towards the purchase of a specialised bike for Liam Cullinane.

Ex French Foreign Legionnaire, Liam Cullinane was left devastated after an encounter with meningitis in 1993. As a result his balance has been severely affected which means he is greatly dependant on a custom-made tricycle for transport. It is also indispensable to his quest to regain full health.

Unfortunately Liam is currently without a trike and his specialised mode of transport is expensive and needs to be imported from Germany

The Back to School Quiz will be held in the King’s Head with tables of four costing €20.

To register a team log onto The King’s Head Facebook or sign up on the night.

Eyre Square cycle from Galway to Germany

This Friday Liam Cullinane and ACT for Meningitis will be joined by some well known sporting personalities in the Eyre Square Centre as they attempt to cycle the equivalent miles from Galway to Germany on exercise bikes donated by the Kingfisher gym.

Siobhan Carroll from ACT for Meningitis is asking Galwegians who would like to be part of this virtual journey to Germany to bring back Liam's bike, to come along on the day and support by cycling, donating, or simply cheering the team on.

“I got to know Liam through our meningitis awareness charity and he is the most inspirational person I have ever met, we really want to help Liam get back on the road."

His most recent bike has been off the road since June this year, and Liam says his tricycle is crucial for his rehabilitation.

“Cycling is absolutely indispensable to my quest to regain full health, it gives me independence and freedom while keeping me young fit and strong,"he says.

Donations can also be made online through http://www.mycharity.ie/event/act_for_meningitis_act_for_meningitiss_event/
