    Just did this quiz this evening. Got all of them apart from questions 10, 11, 17, 32 and the picture question 40.

    10. In 1970, there were 27 companies on the Irish Stock Exchange - just four of those names remain today, either on the main or junior market. Who are they?

    11. What was the level of Ireland's national debt at the end of November 2012?

    17. Which Irish listed company sold off half of its business this year?

    32. Which Ireland-headquarted company enjoyed a successful IPO on the New York Sotock Exchange?

    40. Picture round...I think B is Robert Kraft and C is Jeremy Masding. I recognise D but can't place him.

    Can anyone help? I can help with the other answers. Cheers!

    Question no 11. Not sure but the answer could be €192 billion /GDP 117.7% ?

    Question no 17. Again answer might be Readymix ?

    Question no 32 . Fleetmatics

    Question no 40. A = Julie O'Neill
    B = Blank = it's not Robert Kraft
    C = Jeremy Masding
    D = Blank.
    Any progress since Albert Roi

    Thanks for answer to Question 32. I don’t think Readymix is the answer to Q17as only 38% was sold off according to the Irish Times in April. 10, 11 and 17 have me stumped as well as theremaining two people in photos, so if you get further info I would be grateful. I would be grateful for the answer to Q35 asto whose home is featured.

    Had a look at Mueller's mug shot. There is a likeness, but not convinced. Anyway there must be an Irish dimension to the question!! So it must/could be one of our own!!
