Brain of Dublin 2020 resuming online after COVID delay

When the first COVID lockdown was imposed in March, one of the many, many events impacted was the IQO’s inaugural Brain of Dublin tournament. After our last session in February, we had reached the semi-finals, with 8 quizzers remaining in the competition to be the first-ever Brain of Dublin.

Then lockdown arrived — so since March, the tournament has been in limbo… until now! We’re pleased to announce that the tournament will be resuming online this weekend, with the remaining matches played via Zoom, as we aim to finish the tournament by the middle of December.

The two semi-finals will be played via private Zoom sessions on the 27th-28th November. The final will then be sometime in early-mid December, at a date to be determined. We will be encouraging spectators to come and watch the final, so we will announce the date and time of the final as soon as we can.

Meanwhile, below are the fixtures for the two semi-finals. Best of luck to everyone!

Semi-final 1 (Friday 27th November)

  • Eamonn O’Riordan
  • James Bane
  • Peter Lowney
  • Karen Crofton

Semi-final 2 (Saturday 28th November)

  • Kevin Jones
  • Patrick Carthy

(The top 2 scorers from each semi-final will meet in the 4-player final in December)
