Armagh surprises me. Can't even see it on Google Maps unless you zoom in a lot.

I didn't realise they were two different places until today. I think I've just consolidated them into one in my head. Unfortunately, Omagh was the only one I tried ......

Got all of them and I'm not Irish, it really helps to know some counties, rugby and glass factories... I only got Lisburn because of a SONG about rebels... I think... Whatever, I'll let you know if I can remember the song. Fun fact: I tried Lurgan because of Neil Lennon.

Interesting that Kilkenny has city status despite both Drogheda and Dundalk being larger and having no city status.

When my son did a study abroad summer in Ireland it was easy for me to remember the places he went because they were Dingle, Donegal, Dublin,and Derry. Until this quiz I thought all of those were cities. Turns out Dingle is too small, I guess, and Donegal is a county.
