Odd ones in answers

Much debate over the scores at the Galway Rehab quiz.

It’s bumper-bonus-tonnes-o-quiz week here on the blog, as I am mid-way through three quizzes in six days. I’ll be posting a report of and some questions from quiz #2 later today.

In the meantime, here are the answers to the questions I posted yesterday in Odd ones in.
