Rebel County Quiz

To answer four questions based on photographs taken from the Peter Cox Photography web site.
The winning categories:
Answers should be sent to annbscanlan at hotmail dot com.
Please put Contest or Quiz in the Subject line so if my spam filter eats your mail, it will be easy to find amid all of the requests to enlarge my weapon of love, buy replica rolexes, and imagine that I am healthy.
Deadline for entering is Saturday, 1 March. Winners will be announced Sunday, 2 March.
Each winner will receive one unframed print, courtesy of Peter Cox photography. The print selected will be based on what we currently have in stock. I will make every effort to make sure it is a Cork photograph.
Each question is listed after its related photograph.
