The lowest ever recorded temperature in Ireland was -19.1C. It is very rare that a daytime temperature would stay in the minus figures. Not a cold country at all!

Those countries are flat lands, despite averagely colder than some of the countries listed on, they never had an extreme record.

Britain and Ireland are both very temperate countries, partly due to the influence of the Gulf Stream (a warm sea current from the southwest) which is why we get very little in the way of extreme weather conditions :)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_weather_records#Lowest_temperatures_ever_recorded I believe you might have missed some including Afghanistan, Armenia, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Austria and using this source there are some countries that technically should not be on this list.

That was a good quiz! but could you add Czechia for the Czech republic, it's allowed in pretty much every new quiz ,(although I don't know if the name Czechia was already a thing when you made the quiz) so I didn't thought of typing Czech republic
