No.1 is Cappruagh, or Erinagh as it is called now I believe EIER, recently licensed.

Ok guys, I'll point out the correct ones so far....

1. Erinagh
2. It's a VRP
3. Kinnegad (or Taggarts)
4. Clonbullogue
5. Moyne
6. Limetree
7. Millicent
8. Adamstown (didn't think you'd get that one! It looks different in K. Glynn's Book!)
9. Inismaan
10. St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin
11. Miltown Malby
12. It's within 10NM of Weston, sports ground to the rear might be a hint!
13. Enniskillen

So still missing 2 and 12, anyone else for a guess?
