Quality All-Ireland Quiz: Answers

September 18, 2009 in All-Ireland Quiz, Quizzes

Quiz radioHere are the answers to the 10 questions I posted earlier in the Quality All-Ireland Quiz article.

I was listening to the show this morning and Ray revealed that the questions were written by the same man who did them for Blackboard Jungle (the quiz show, not the movie), back in the day. That’s kinda cute IMO. I do wonder what this fellow’s been doing in the meantime though?!
