Quiz: How well do you know these old Irish TV intros?
Can you tell what these classics are from a still taken from their intro?

That sounds like a good enough excuse for a nostalgia quiz, so we’ve grabbed a few stills from well-known Irish TV shows from years gone by to test how many you can name.
