    A quiz about Irish counties. It can be on anything. History, sport, etc.
    The person who gets the answer right gets to ask the next question.
    I'll start. What county is known as the 'Garden of Ireland'?

    He was a clergyman, studied mathematical modelling, was a professor of geology and also studied medicine. He also developed the original equations for hanging as a humane method of execution.

    Who was he and from what county?

    Cork. Oh, please read my rules. It says to only answer the county. You would still be able to use the name of the person as part of the question though.
