Despite Loss, Wexford’s Emily Cullen And University Challenge Team Are Through To Next Stages

A Wexford native appeared on the ‘University Challenge’ once again last night…

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

Emily Cullen, originally from Clonroche in Wexford, appeared on last night’s episode of the long-running game-show.

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

The Robert Gordon University team, with Emily Cullen as their captain, lost out to the team Royal Holloway, University of London, with the scores at the end 170-85 in favour of the winners.

Despite the loss, both teams will now go through to the next stage of the competition.

RGU will need to win the challenge in order to be in with a chance of getting through to the semi-finals.
