  1. 18/20 for a nothern prod isnt bad.

    Only problem is that it was southern centred. I dont see *my* culture reflected in their version of Irishness.

    Hrmph
    (:-) for the smiley challenged)

  2. Your score is 75%. Good job!

    some of that was just guesswork though – I didn’t even know Ireland had a female patron saint!! lol

  3. Sorry to burst bubbles all you 20/20ers

    there was a ‘trick’ question.

    Erin go Bragh is utterly meaning less to an ‘REAL’ Irish person. ร‰ireann go Brรกch on the other hand means Ireland forever. So well done – ye’re all 100% Irish-Americans.

    19/20 and proud ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. Correct!

    You answered 20 items out of 20 correctly.

    Your score is 100%. Excellent job!

    Yerooooo……

  5. Ringo, I refute all allegations made by any enemies of this quiz process. I have made a full and frank statement above on my results. I refuse to comment further.

  6. … well the currency one was a trick question as well, round here its the (non Northern bank) pound ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. How do you go about taking this quiz? I would be interested to see if there is a closet rebel hiding away in me somewhere!

  8. 19/20 – doesnt make me any more Irish – just confirms a resaonable level of general knowledge, plus 2 lucky guesses.

  9. 15/20. 75 % ain’t bad for a patrioic BRITISH Loyalist! I’d better keep that quiet at band practice tonight!

    What is Bloomsbury Day? I have never heard of it before, and I’ve never heard of a “shillelagh” either – I thought it might of been a pot of gold! lol.

  10. 100%, naturally.

    Unfortunately, for any of you Unionists who scored over 75%, your IP has been logged and your Irish passport is in the post. Prepare to be deported.

    Concerned Loyalist, you should be.

  11. 18 / 20

    90% is reasonable for a 5th generaion Irish American.

    I had no idea where Croagh Patrick is and like Concerned Loyalist I’d never heard of a shillelagh.

  12. “mucky”, I’ll not rise to the bait!
    I would rather die than live on my knees in an Irish Republic, and of the 1 million Protestants in Northern Ireland i’m sure a large percentage of them would be of the same mind

  13. 18/20 for a nothern prod isnt bad.

    Only problem is that it was southern centred. I dont see *my* culture reflected in their version of Irishness.

  14. 17/20.

    Not bad for an ex Bangor Boy who hasn’t lived in Norn Iron for 27+ years.

    Alan2:

    >>would it be pronounced shell-lay-lee?

    I believe that is the correct pronounciation.

  15. 85%

    It is actually Trivial Pursuit – Irish (American) Edition. Are any of you old enough to remember the singer, Carmel Quinn, from the Arthur Godfrey TV show (in USA)? She sang a song about “With a shillelagh under me arm, and a twinkle in me eye, …” I think leprechauns use shillelaghs to hold themsleves up. I’m sure I saw one in “Darby O’Gill and the Little People.”

  16. Your score is 75%. Good job!

    some of that was just guesswork though – I didn’t even know Ireland had a female patron saint!! lol

    “”shillelagh” is this an Irish gaelic word?”

    No, but it’s an anglicisation of the Irish “sail รฉille”, usually an oak, ash, holly or blackthorn walking stick (also a fighting stick).

    “would it be pronounced shell-lay-lee?”
    probably close enough.

    I can’t believe some people never heard of a shillelagh.
