Know yer town do ye?

Postby jordo » Mon Feb 09, 2009 7:22 pm

Hope this works, made it up myself :roll: It covers from this side of Booterstown to this side of Bray. (I'm in Dalkey at the moment :D )



1) Penninsular burial place in the heart of the town.

2) Two way traffic for 10,000 men

3) Bovine Scotsman.

4) This black stuff wouldn't quench your thirst here

5) A very delicate object indeed

6) A cross eyed view of the coal quay.

7) Summer time castles abound in this little fjord

8) Adam and Eve's summer homes.

9) A habit forming place to live.

10) Boots needed for this short walk.

11) African coloured stone to throw at trains.

12) Marching on water is the theme here.

13) A postmans nightmare.

14) Assembly point for botanists.

15) At the Fair a Cockney 'hiya'. (I checked it with Toby)

16) Trick extractor sort of place.

17) Book worms heaven.

18) The 'Boy from Killane's' opportunity.

19) Milk the bees for this one.

20) Ceramic objects are missing in this place.

21) Tall farm building on a pinnacle.

22) An empty place for a graceful bird.

23) Are they all 'doubters' that live here.

24) Insects abound here but a good place to meet none the less.

25) A D. J. will fix it for you if you want to play here.

26) A Halloween type of place to go for a dance if you're hungry.

27) High Church perhaps.

28) So good they named it twice. A rancher and a poet might help. So would grass and Avoca

29) Was the fella that built this place really a 'Foundling'? The Brothers might know.

30 A shade of wild dog and a patriot

4, 13, 14 and 15??? are Glasthule

10, 12, 16, 29 and 30 are D/L

21 is in Dalkey

25 in Killiney.

Spud might be able to help with 11 and 27.

Thought meet would have given 24.

28 Is going to be hard and I can't think of anything to say about it.

Where do sheep graze and what is Avoca famous for besides The Meetings?
