Time to exercise the brains

Postby Grania » Thu Jan 25, 2007 7:51 pm

Hi all.

This is an idea I had a while back, and I just thought I'd try it out and see how it goes. Some of you may remember a while back we had a 'Moya Trivia' thread, where a question was asked about Moya, and a correct answer had to be given before a new question could be asked. Well, this thread is a similar thing - only it's general knowledge. :wink:

So, the rules are that you answer the question posted by the person before you, and must wait to see if your answer is right. Once it is confirmed, then you post the next question and so on. The questions can be on any topic, but please make sure we're all in with a fair chance of knowing the answer!! :wink:

Right then, I'll start.

Something Irish....

What is the name of the famous bridge spanning the river that runs through Dublin?


Have fun! :D

OK, as I know some of you have been to Ireland... This is going to be a bit tongue-in-cheek question, not entirely serious one, so be careful. :lol: I fell about when I figured out the answer when I was asked this.

The question is:

Where in Ireland can you the most often see an Irish setter?
;)

Really?!?! Wow- you learn something new every day- great topic!
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
