This year’s event is being held at Cedars Upper School on the evening of Monday, February 26.

But you don’t need to be a potential Mastermind contestant to be able to take part – and to prove it here are a small selection of questions typical of the ones that you and your team might be challenged with...

1. Was Michael Buble once a salmon fisherman?

2. Who is no longer the boss of Formula 1 ?

3. What three letter word means “At this present moment in time”?

4. “Sidepocket for a Toad” is a locally made product - but what is it?

5. Which Dublin company uses 100,000 tons of barley each year ?

6. What local town with 130 roundabouts was 50 last year?

A Rotary spokesman said: “If you can get the answers to any of these you will probably enjoy our quiz night. It is a fun evening where nobody gets embarrassed by the questions! All the profits go to Rotary charities.”

Teams of four are needed whether you be from a business, club or society or a group of friends.

The price to enter equates to £12.50 a ticket (£50 for a team of four) to cover a hot meal and dessert for the contestants. There will also be a licensed bar with waitress service.
