While parts of Dublin are funny, it is on the River Liffey, not Laffey.

It's a very important waterway for Amsterdam, linking the former Zuiderzee (now IJmeer, Markermeer and IJsselmeer) to the North Sea in IJsselmonde. IJ is an ancient word that has a lot to do with water, you could find it in IJssel, IJsselmonde...

Maybe the clue could be changed to the River Amstel, to make it a little more obvious. Nothing wrong with IJ though.

You know when you feel really tired? Like when you're putting in Uk, France, Ireland and getting nowhere so get really frustrated and close the quiz... Only to go back on later and realise it's the cities... Yeah, that happened. Great idea for a quiz though!

Usually I don't complain about time, but there wasn't enough time for the amount of questions.

Uhh, no. There are 196 world capitals (according to Jetpunk), and a lot more than 26 of them lie on a body of water.
