Peoria vs. Clonmel: Sister Cities face off in annual trivia competition

Every year Peoria residents gather at Jimmy’s Bar in West Peoria to compete against residents at Carey’s Pub in Clonmel, Ireland during their annual trivia competition.

Peoria and Clonmel are sister cities that compete in friendly sibling rivalry during the competition. The two bars Skype during the eight rounds of trivia as a way to continue strengthening their relationship.

“It seems like we have people going to Clonmel constantly now and they’re coming back here. There are interconnections, people talk, I mean I probably talk to somebody from Clonmel at least once a twice a week now,” Friends of Clonmel President Jim Dillon said.

Each year the winner gets a trophy that they fly back and forth between Ireland and America depending on who wins.
