Guess who’s back answers (bonus track)

October 13, 2012 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

Below you will find the answers to the questions I posed in yesterday’s post, Guess who’s back.

I’m getting them posted today for two reasons.  Firstly, myself and Mrs Tablequiz are off to the Irish Blog Awards tonight so, you’d never know, I may need to do another post tomorrow. ;-) Then again, I probably won’t but I intend having a good night in any event!

Secondly, I spotted a nice little quiz on The Journal this morning.  It features 10 lines from Irish literature (or poetry) and you simply have to identify the author and the title of the work.  I surprised myself by getting 7 of the 10 right.  You can have a go at: www.thejournal.ie/can-you-identify-these-irish-literary-quotations-629772-Oct2012/
