Sherlock came up in today's Junior Cert English exam

The game is on!

SEND US BACK to school. We feel we could do a lot better in our Junior Cert now, if these are the type of questions they’re getting.

BBC’s Sherlock (and Benedict Cumberbatch’s lovely visage) came up in the Junior Cert English exam today – an essay by British writer Caitlin Moran entitled My Love Affair With Sherlock was used for a reading comprehension question.

Moran delightedly tweeted the question earlier after it was sent to her by a fan.

No fair. We’d have been well able for this.
