Cap­tain Car­roll bay­ing for blood

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - lmur­phy @irish­times.com

If you’re not feel­ing too del­i­cate to­mor­row morn­ing, tune in to Phan­tom FM’s arts and cul­ture show at 11am (105.2FM, or on­line at phan­tom.ie) to catch the fiercest on-air squab­ble this side of Live­line.

The Kiosk is host­ing a quiz that will pit three mem­bers of Ire­land’s finest en­ter­tain­ment sup­ple­ment – that’d be The Ticket – against three of our jour­nal­is­tic peers from Day & Night, the Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent’s sup­ple­ment, in a bat­tle of wits and pop-cul­ture knowl­edge.

My­self and Sinéad Glee­son will be fol­low­ing our gal­lant cap­tain Jim Car­roll into the fray. On the op­pos­ing side, John Meagher will cap­tain a team that in­cludes Ea­mon Sweeney and Niall Byrne.

“Both teams will be putting their rep­u­ta­tions on the line, so you can be guar­an­teed there’ll be drama,” said Kiosk host Na­dine O’Re­gan.

To add to the drama, there’s an op­por­tu­nity for a lis­tener to win a ¤200 voucher for Ea­son by pre­dict­ing the win­ner. En­ter by tweet­ing @nadi­ne­o­re­gan or email­ing kiosk@phan­tom.ie by 11.30am to­mor­row.

It isn’t The Ticket’s style to be cocky – but in the words of Cap­tain Car­roll: “We’re go­ing to murder them. And then laugh. Out loud. And point our fin­gers at them. And laugh again.”

Day & Night: con­sider your­selves warned.
