Wexford Woman Appears On University Challenge As Team Captain – And Her Team Wins

A Wexford woman has appeared on the ‘University Challenge’…

University Challenge is a British television quiz programme which first aired in 1962 and it’s still going strong across our TV screens.

Emily Cullen, originally from Clonroche in Wexford, appeared on one of the most recent episodes of the long-running game-show.

Emily is currently studying for her Masters. She is now a trainee pharmacist at Southmead Hospital in Bristol. The Wexford woman was leading a team, representing Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen (RGU).

Her appearance on the show caught the attention of Wexford native, Paul Byrne, who believes that it’s the first time that a Wexford student has appeared on the hit game-show.

Not only did the Wexford woman appear on the tv show and lead her team as captain, but the team were also successful in the recent episode, winning by 210 points to 90.
