    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?
