Event description
The Scottish Quiz Team is delighted to invite quizzers from Ireland, Wales and Scotland to join us in Edinburgh for the Celtic Nations 2019

About this Event

The tournament includes Individual and Pairs competitions and a range of social quizzes, all of which are open to everyone. The national A, B, C (and hopefully D) squads for Ireland, Scotland and Wales will also face each other in two rounds of team matches which you are very welcome to watch, and there may even be places to be won in the national squads depending on results in the individuals and pairs.

Results from the Individuals, Pairs and National Team competitions are combined to find out which country is the Celtic Champion, so your performance could be crucial to your nation's chances!

Entry is free for Irish and Welsh quizzers as they are traveling from afar, but we will be asking Scottish quizzers for a £10 contribution towards the costs of the event (payable at the event).
