Quiz: How well do you remember 1998?
Cast your mind back and see how well you can remember the year that was.

THE ECONOMY WAS booming, we had to watch a French team lift a World Cup that Ireland didn’t even make it to, and there was plenty of talk of impeaching the US President.

And no, we’re not talking about 2018 here.
