6. How many times, approximately, have you been dragged to Knock Shrine?
Don't knock Knock until you've tried it, hey!
More times than I can count. The word 'novena' strikes fear in my heart.

It looks pretty!
Reek Sunday is where it's at.

Whenever I see it, I get flashbacks to THAT school tour. *shudders*
8. Fill in the blanks in this Saw Doctors song lyric: "Oh the green and red of Mayo, I can see it still / Its soft and ____ _______, its ___ ______ hills"
Lovely jersey, steep imposing
Pretty women, green rolling

Lilting accent, sheep-infested
Craggy bogland, tall majestic
9. What is Manulla Junction?
A train stop.
A nightclub in Castlebar.

A chipper in Ballyhaunis.
A festering wasteland where dreams go to die.
10. And finally - if someone shouted "SHTATE A YOU!" at you, how would you respond?
"Leave me alone."
"I'll open ya like a packet of Tayta."

"Shtate a YOU."
"Soonie the beure!"
