Quiz: Can you identify these Irish towns with shared placenames?

For the eagle-eyed amongst you.

This article is part of The Good Information Project, a new initiative from The Journal to help create greater understanding of big issues we face. This month we are focussing on the question ‘What could a shared island look like?’.

AS PART OF our project, we’ve taken a look at what shares and separates different parts of Ireland. As if to accentuate the shared heritage, some places even have the same name.
