The ‘Inishbofin Island Table Quiz Fundraiser Series’ which is run annually by the Inishbofin Community Service Programme (CSP), is primarily a fundraising event to support the work of the CSP. These will be held every Wednesday Night during July and August in various venues on the island. They always promise to be a great night out for islanders and island visitors!

Individuals more than welcome also, as teams can be made up on the night, however this is subject to numbers.
The Community Services Programme (CSP) gives grants to community businesses that deliver services and create employment for people from disadvantaged groups. Funded by the Department of Social Protection and managed by Pobal, it supports some 425 community companies and co-operatives. The CSP works in communities where public and private-sector services are lacking,in terms of Inishbofin this is through geographical or social isolation.
The CSP works on a social-enterprise model. This means that it does not fully fund contract holders (i.e. grant recipients), but requires that they generate revenue by charging fees or raising funds. These enterprises remain responsible for their own budgets and financial and other liabilities.
