In the next few days, after an absence of a few weeks, we will resume our study of Dublin with a series of posts, talks, tours and quizes. We have several quizes lined up, on different themes of history and architecture (and history and architecture combined) as well as guided tours and discussions.
But to get things started, first a small quiz. Five questions below for you. As before, answers can be submitted via the comments button please. (don’t be scared to guess!)
Please note: all answers will be read and responded to, but following good feedback from the last quiz, I’ve made the decision not to publish the answers this time until the answer deadline early next week. At that stage we will publish all answers, (unless requested otherwise) all at once!
We will also of course announce the answers and the winners the same day.
Good luck, and enjoy…
Question 1. – Can you name the this building?
2- Can you name the this building?
Q.3- Can you name the this building, or at least its location?

And finally, 5- this building, below? Name/function of the building and the name of street please…
