The Director’s Quiz 2019

Welcome to The Little Museum of Dublin’s 2019 quiz

Picture the scene. It’s Christmas Day. You are at home with a full belly and a short temper. Your ever-loving family are trying your patience. What are you going to do with them?

If that sounds familiar, read on…

Our director is obsessed with general knowledge and, yes, history. These twin passions come together in his annual quiz. It’s a fun way to keep the whole family occupied for a while on Christmas Day.

This year, we invite you to email a picture of your completed quiz to Twenty winners will be chosen at random – each will win a copy of Dubliners, which has just been published in a handsome new edition by Canongate.

In Dubliners, James Joyce takes us on an extraordinary journey with the ordinary men and women from the city of his birth. From short, lyrical stories to the novella-length masterpiece The Dead, Joyce’s Dubliners is the greatest collection of short stories in the English language.
