    Are there 2 different versions of the Diffneys quiz?



  • Registered Users Posts: 20 0strich


    There's the original one released by Diffney menswear each year.

    They also produce one for The Hollybough (a festive magazine released by the Evening Echo each year). This version has a big cash prize as far as I know. Lot of the clues are Cork based.
