Help Identifying a Dublin name game

    Sorry for the vague and fuzzy memory people.

    Basically it's a small name puzzle game where clues are given on a little cards and all the answers are Dublin street names/places but other then that I can't for the life of me remember what it is called or any other detail.

    The clues are abstract names for places in Dublin for example one card would read " Austrialian Street March" and the answer would be "Sydney Parade"

    Anybody know what I am talking about or did I dream this??

    Nice one, Oroukeda.

    I thought that about Crumlin too but didn't want to include it as its pushin it a bit.

    I guess 25 may end in "ale" like Darndale. Without a decent map of Dublin, I can't check tho.

    I cant decide if it is a brand of beer (bud miller etc) or another word for beer (scoop. jar, etc) its starting to do my head in

    Think this might be a typo on the place I took it from (an old thread here).

    Should be "An Elusive Peer" - one of the easier ones after all.
