Celtic Nations Quizzing Championships

The 2020/21 Celtic Nations in Dublin was cancelled due to COVID-19. We plan to host the event in April 2022 instead. Details to be announced.


First held in 2013, the Celtic Nations is an annual international quiz tournament held every April and contested between Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

Hosting of the tournament rotates between the three countries. The next tournament is due to be hosted in Dublin in April 2022 – watch this space for more details.

The tournament takes place over 2 days and consists of various individuals, pairs and team quizzes. Anyone is welcome to come along and take part in the individual and pairs quizzes – participation in the teams quizzes is chosen by a selection panel and is mainly based on the Irish quiz rankings.
