“The Gift”

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”

Thursday, 23rd of February in the SU at 5pm.

Whether you’re a man, woman or any other gender, if you recognised this quote there’s a surprise in store for you coming very soon. Maynooth’s very own Game of Thrones society have arranged something truly special for anyone familiar with the spectacularly popular show. If you are going to be on campus between the sixth and the seventh of March, you might just want to visit the SU as you, yes you, could get the chance to sit on the real, genuine, true-to-life Iron Throne that many have lost their life for. This will be a truly amazing chance for any fans of the show as not only will the genuine throne (have I emphasised it enough yet that it is the true throne that will be coming) will be there but with it shall also be some other iconic props from the hit-series. Keep our wits about however, as Robert Baratheon once said “I swear to you, sitting a throne is a thousand times harder than winning one.”


This has been kindly organised entirely by Game of Thrones Society and tickets to get your opportunity to feel like you are the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms will cost you ten euro and eternal photographic glory! Or, even better, you are in with a chance to win tickets to get a seat on the throne by competing in GoT society’s pub quiz on the 23rd of February, (THURSDAY) in the SU at 5pm. And if that has you hyped, there’s another prize to be won on that night. If you come, dressed in costume and your’s is deemed the best, you will win a Golden Throne ticket. The fee for the quiz entry is two euro per person and you will compete in teams of four. So, get your team, brush up on your GoT trivia. Pledge your life and honour to the Night’s Watch as Jon Snow would and get ready for a fierce battle of wits and knowledge.
