Crosswords at the Crossroads: Irish Wordsmiths

The premiere of our "Crosswords at the Crossroads" at the end of last month was met with exuberant participation among much of the membership here at The Wild Geese.  Quite a few informed us that they learned a great deal about Ireland's unofficial county nicknames by completing the puzzle.

This week, we focus on an area which is the favorite of many among The Wild Geese membership: Literature.  We've put together a puzzle which will test the knowledge of even an avid devotee of Irish literature.  Some of the clues may not be terribly difficult for you, and others may strain the brain a bit -- but that's what it's all about!

As always, the answers will be posted on this page the following Monday.  Once you've completed the puzzle, be sure to leave a comment below to let everyone know how you fared.  If you cannot determine one or more of the answers, sit tight and wait for the answers to be revealed -- or bring in an Irish literature "ringer" you know for a little assistance.  Simply click the thumbnail image of the puzzle below, and you'll be taken to the interactive puzzle page.

As always, have fun, and "go n-éirí!"
