Quiz: Can you name these Irish islands?
Can you tell your Inishgloras from your Inishkerraghs?

HOW MANY ISLANDS are there off the coast of Ireland?

Do you know? You can go and count them, if you want. But make it quick.

Actually, look, leave it. It has been a tough week. We won’t ask you to do that, it would be an absolute headwreck. Instead, just take a look at these aerial shots and tell us if you can name the island.
