1. Pasanario - September 28, 2012

1. Sean Gallagher
2. Victor Boyhan (Ind — Dun Laoghaire)
3. Your Kind of Country by Colm T Wilkinson
4. Frank Kelly
5. Don’t know or care
6. Dick Spring (Drico will, I suspect, be the next one — FG Dub South circa-2020, anyone?)
7. 1985
8. 4 percent ?
9. 158 (huge difference there, eh?)
10. I’m stumped there. Is that Michael O’Leary on the left? Maybe it’s Maureen O’Carroll given you’ve already mentioned her son.

For number 10, it looks more like Ray MacSharry on the left to me.
The old dear in the middle has to be the mother of Charlie H. Just look at the eyelids! I bet it was the day Charlie became Taoiseach. Albert and Ray were obviously determined not to be outdone in the arslikin that day!


Tomboktu - September 28, 2012

Pasanario, your answer to no. 6 is wrong. I can’t remember his name, but a former international rugby player was elected a TD for FF for Dublin North more recently than Spring’s time in Leinster House.


EamonnCork - September 28, 2012

Jim Glennon is the rugby player.


2. Tomboktu - September 28, 2012

Ah here. Question 5 is a sports question, not politics. 🙂


irishelectionliterature - September 28, 2012

A mixture of both 🙂


3. Joe - September 29, 2012

At least two correct answers to Question 7, no? ’69 and ’85?
