Quiz: How much do you know about the 'green list' countries?

You probably shouldn’t go to any of these places, but how much do you know about them?

LAST NIGHT THE government agreed a ‘green list’ of countries and territories from which people can travel without having to restrict their movements upon returning in Ireland.

Fifteen locations are on the initial list, which is set to be monitored as countries respond to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
