How Irish are you?

Missed this one. Now you can determine just how Irish you are (or aren’t!). Let us now know how you get on! (I haven’t done it yet, before you ask!!)

  • Dec

    100%. In your face, Britain!!!

  • Gerry O’Sullivan


  • mnob

    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.

    (:-) for the smiley challenged)

  • cg


    Was there ever any doubt ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Mick Fealty

    Ahem, 95%. Well what’s the Kinsey film got to do with being Irish?

  • Henry94

    You answered 20 items out of 20 correctly.

    Your score is 100%. Excellent job!

    Up the republic!

  • smcgiff

    95% – When did they move Croagh Patrick from Meath? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • beano

    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

  • smcgiff

    ‘Your score is 75%. Good job!’

    Still, it only leave 25% max British in you!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ringo

    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˜›

  • Donnie

  • maca

    90%, Bloomsday & Behan questions.

    Ringo, well it is an Irish-American website.

  • Ringo

    top o’ the mornin’ to ya, Maca!

  • maca

    Begorrah n’ bejaysus surr!

  • murphii4word

    Slow day at Slugger?
    Bob Murphy

  • Donnie

    The Behan question is the one that almost tripped me up. So I guessed ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Ringo

    you got it wrong, didn’t you Donnie?

    and now the guilt is eating away at you… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • slackjaw

    20/20. Cut me and I bleed green, like the Hulk.

  • Donnie

    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.

  • Ringo

    very good, Donnie!

  • mnob

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

  • Rebecca Black

    85% there you go, even unionists can know plenty about Ireland!!

  • George

    This quiz should be titled “How much do you know about the Irish”.

  • Concerned Loyalist

    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!

  • SlugFest

    85%. but then i’m only a plastic paddy.

  • Ringo

    click on the link at the top of the thread CL

  • Biffo



  • Will

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

  • Jimmy Sands

    I’m claiming 21 for spotting they spelt Dev’s name wrong.

  • Concerned Loyalist

    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.

  • mucky

    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.

  • tadgh

    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.

  • Concerned Loyalist

    “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

  • Alan2

    “shillelagh” is this an Irish gaelic word?

    would it be pronounced shell-lay-lee?

  • exBangorBoy


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


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

    I believe that is the correct pronounciation.

  • Alan McDonald


    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.”

  • The Devil

    Grief what a bunch of MUPPETS all happy like 5 year old kids that just answered 4+4 for a sweet.

    What a silly useless quiz, the only chance of getting one wrong was through boredom..

    2) How much money will the A/T/News get from the British government this year

    3) How many days before Christmas will the killers of Garda McCabe be released

    4) When will the killers of Robert McCartney be jailed

    5) How much is Gerry the unemployed barman/failed writers house in Donegal worth

    6) Will Mother Ruane be organizing a Shortstrand three campaign

    7) If she does will she remember to keep in contact with them

    8) Which army council member betrayed the Eksund

    9) How many bedrooms are there in the holiday home of life long communist.. that’s right I said communist Brian Keenans house in Donegal

    10) Which one of sluggers moderators is giving out the ISP’s of sluggers posters to amateurish computer hacks from S/F


    Your answers should read

    1) NEVER


    3) 15-17

    4) NEVER

    5) 600,000



    8) ADAMS



  • Young Irelander


    That wasn’t as good as this though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • maca

    Nice one YI, thankfully I got all (a).

    Nice one Devil, one of your better postings I might say ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “”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.

  • metacom

    cead faoin cead. Ro-easca! Nios mo Eireannach na na Eireannaigh iad fein!

  • The Devil

    We aim to displease Maca ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Art MacErc

    Ok for an old Shankill ex-prod.
