Okay, so I keep typing over and over and over "Skellig Michael" which is the name of the bloody island the movies were shot on and your quiz WON'T accept that? Sorry, that's just insulting. Reporting this quiz.

Good one. You could list Dublin as the capital of the "Republic of" Ireland, as "Ireland" is referring to the whole island. No big deal to me, but then, I'm not Irish.
