Killiney Lions Quiz #309

Last evening I had the pleasure once again of being Quiz master for the Killiney Lions Club fund-raising quiz in the Rochestown Lodge Hotel. A smaller than usual crowd were treated to lots of questions on the General Election, and on the 1916 Rising. Mixed into this were the usual general knowledge and picture rounds. One of the hardest rounds was the first - average score was about 5/10. Here are the questions, see how you do:

What character in the Harry Potter series of films was played by the late Alan Rickman?
Who are the current Guinness Pro12 Champions?
Name the three countries that the Republic of Ireland will play in the 2016 Euro Finals in France this summer.
Name the three countries that Northern Ireland will play in the 2016 Euro Finals in France this summer.
In 1929, the midlands town of Maryborough was renamed - what is the town’s current name?
What is Van Morrison’s real first name?
In the animal kingdom, what is a “polliwog”?
He died on 22nd September last year and amongst many of his famous quotes was "It's like déjà vu all over again" – who was he?
