It depends if you mean 'Ireland' to mean the whole island - which it is in a purely geographical sense - or 'Ireland' to refer to the Republic of Ireland, which uses the former name (i.e. without the 'Republic') as its official name.

Technically still valid and not unused, but anachronistic and not in common use at all. Not in my experience at least.

I am Irish and I think alot of people would prefer Offaly and Laois as Kings County and Queens County were from the times the UK rule all of Ireland and keeping ties like that weren't really part of it

For those not in the know, these are new divisions to make Dublin easier to run. Could maybe sidestep this by renaming the quiz to traditional counties of Ireland?

DR and Haiti would belong together if the quiz was about the island of Hispaniola, as this one is about the island of Ireland.

Correct, the "aught" spelling is an Anglicization that has been reversed apart from some legacy titles as is no longer in common use here.

Source: I live there, but a quick google search should how how much more common the "acht" spelling is now

American here. Can only reliably name 10-12 counties. I have always liked how the Irish put "County" before the name of the county rather than the other way around like we do in the US. It just seems classy somehow.
