9/12, I guess all that Ken Bruen, Tana French, Oscar Wilde, John Connolly, Tim Pat Coogan and the rest paid off…to some degree. They sure were/are a pleasure to read anyway.

speaking Welsh helps although the languages are rather different. "Deri" is Oak treas in Welsh so Derry was one for free.

Quite pleased with 8/12, can’t say I knew them but they sounded right?

Wow, I didn't even attempt this one - I might just possibly have got one out of the twelve. Good to see a quiz that is a real challenge, even if it is too tough fore me!

Thought it was of Celtic origin but nothing like Welsh or Cornish. It is sometimes suggested that the Welsh are the Irish who couldn't swim.
