What is a group of Giraffes called?
A very enjoyable night was had at the Walkers Association of Ireland quiz held Wednesday night in aid of Irish Mountain Rescue Association. A team was cobbled together to carry the Mountainviews flag. We came a respectable third place against stiff opposition. (and yes there were more than three teams!)

There was a healthy mixture of hillwalking related questions, general knowledge and obscure trivia. An appropriate amount of heckling and booing took place at the organisers when they insisted the number 9 occurs 19 times between 1 and 100. (We got the correct answer - can you work it out?) Also what is the collective term for a group of giraffes? Or which Irish racecouse has all the vowels in its name? How about who rode on a horse naked through the streets of Coventry?

Here are a few of the hillwalking related questions also. How would you do?

In which mountain range is Lyracappul?

What is the height of Carrauntoohil in metres?

What is the lake to the south of Cloghernagh in Wicklow?

In which mountain range is Wolftrap Mountain?

What is the name of the lake on the north east side of Tonelagee in Wicklow?

In which mountain range is the Big Gun?

In which county would you find Derryclare and the Derryclare Horseshoe?

Think these are easy? Well watch out for the next quiz and pit youself against some like-minded souls! If you require the answer to any of these questions feel free to post the request! And always remember - a group of owls is called a parliament of owls!
