What do we know about our history

Landsdowne Market Research have published the preliminary results of a survey they did on how much Irish history the general public know. The results are actually better than I would have expected.

Shame on me, when I read the questions I couldn't remember who the first Irish President was.

Here are the questions they have posted, see which ones you know the answers to before going to the results page

  • Which Irish historical figure was known as the Emancipator?
  • Michael Collins was a leader on which side in the civil war, the pro treaty side or the anti treaty side?
  • Who was the first President of Ireland?
  • Who was Taoiseach during World War 2 ?
  • In what year did Ireland officially become a Republic ?
