    Is that a Cork paper or something?

    EDIT: just Googled it - with Evening Echo. (Don't think that's available up here)

    The HolyBough is a cork paper but is sent global for all expats. I'm sure you can get it up in Dublin .... 'in all good book stores!!' ;-)

    Hopefully this link should give the blank quiz to you: (Just right-click and Save Image As)

    I suspect that N N I should be N N 1. I have emailed the Holly Bough editor, so he might clear it up for us. If it is a 1, I have the answer (Yes! Yes! Yes! ... a Meg Ryan moment there......).

    ****

    Here's the response from the Editor:
    "Your answer based on N N 1 would appear to be correct. Gerry has used the Roman numeral for one, which I appreciate can be open to misinterpretation. Thanks for making me aware of this - I think most people will assume the Roman numeral refers to number 1 but if anyone else approaches me about it, I will tell them the same as I told you.
    John"


    Hint: Before clearing the spoiler, look at your TG4 TV listings.

    I actually said that to my son today, but was caught up on the I fact - didn't even dawn on the fact that it could signify a number..................:mad: I'm kicking myself now :mad: ouch! that hurt :D:D:D:D

    Roll on next year for a new one, now that this years is finished.:)

    This could end up like a Lotto syndicate. If a board member wins and we split the €500 - we will get about a Euro each!!:mad:

    The personal satisfaction in completing the quiz is the main thing though, not the cash. It has given me 2 days of fun, and a sleepless night last night thinking of NNI.

    'Black 47' is the name given to the year 1847 when the famine was at its height and is generally considered to be the worst year in Irish history.

    (Presumably the band took their name from that).
