Search on for town’s Mastermind

The hunt was underway for Lurgan’s ‘Mastermind’ in November 1978 with a series of heats being held in advance of the big final in December.

Pictured are winner of the second heat Sean McCleary (seated centre) and seated with him (from left) were John McStravick and Danny Toland; back (from left) Jim Casey, quizmaster, and time keeper Oliver Headley.

The series was organised by St Peter’s GF Social and Recreation Club and was unashamedly based on the TV series of the same name.
