It says counties of Ireland. I guess maybe it should specify republic of Ireland but I think most people wouldn't include british occupied territory as Ireland.

'British occupied territory'? Don't make me laugh son. Northern Ireland is an integral part of the United Kingdom because a majority of the population within Northern Ireland wish it and have expressed this wish via the democratic process. Further, the Good Friday Agreement - which enshrines this right of self-determination - was passed in referenda undertaken in both Northern Ireland AND the Republic of Ireland. If it were to be transferred to the Republic against the wishes of the people of Northern Ireland it would be 'Irish occupied territory'.

I agree with your comments regarding the Good Friday Agreement, however you are dismissing the history of the island of Ireland completely. If Northern Ireland were transferred back to Ireland, for any reason, it would never ever be considered "Irish occupied territory." To say otherwise makes you an ignorant fool. I'm sure the people of Northern Ireland would take that vote back now if they could, given Brexit.

If it were transferred then it wouldn't be Irish occupied because it was transferred. If it were transferred to Norway then it wouldn't be Norwegian occupied, either; it'd be part of Norway. Occupation is "the action, state, or period of occupying or being occupied by military force" and unless you're some kind of anarchist, I think it's accepted that NIreland is not being occupied, nor would it be if it became part of Ireland most likely.

I'm just gonna put this in here....didn't the british stick non-irish people in northern ireland which ended up meaning the majority of people were not irish and therefore didn't want to be in Ireland?

The quiz is about the island of Ireland, the political situation of the island is not of relevance to this quiz.

Although Londonderry is on the map of Ireland, It is not considered part of Ireland as Northern Ireland is under the British Rule?

It depends if you mean 'Ireland' to mean the whole island - which it is in a purely geographical sense - or 'Ireland' to refer to the Republic of Ireland, which uses the former name (i.e. without the 'Republic') as its official name.

Derry is the name of the county, while Londonderry is the official name for the second largest city in Northern Ireland.

Legally, the city and county are called "Londonderry", while the local government district containing the city is called "Derry and Strabane" - Wikipedia

I could be wrong, but I don't remember Cavan or Donegal being part of Ulster (I'd be very worried if they were).
