Books of the Bible Quiz Answers

Thanks to Lilian Webb for setting and organizing this most successful fundraising quiz

From Lilian: 
Thanks to all who entered the above and for those who didn't get around to entering - I hope you "enjoyed" the challenge! .  I received 94 entries - and I'm sure the postman was wondering why I got so much post in a couple of weeks!  The returned quizzes came from Wicklow, Kildare, Cork, Offaly, Tipperary, Antrim, Kilkenny, Carlow, Waterford, Longford, Laois, Cavan, Clare, Dublin & England!  

The winners were picked by a couple who were here for afternoon tea - and all three came from Co. Cork.

The total amount received was €526.00.  If I received sufficient I envisaged donating the cost of producing the parish newsletter - for the year - CSNL NEWS - and give the balance to Christian Aid - and this is what I will be doing - so €117.00 goes to the parish of Celbridge, Straffan & Newcastle-Lyons and the balance to Christian Aid.  I have to thank a parishioner in Straffan - Linda - for setting me the challenge!  So - well done and thank you to everybody.
