QUIZ: Can you name the counties in Ireland in order of size, from the largest to the smallest?

This might sound fairly easy on paper, but can you beat the clock?

Ireland might not be the biggest country in the world, but as many people are discovering while sensibly staying at home for their holidays, it’s not exactly tiny either.

Sure, while you could probably travel from the east to west coast in a matter of hours, there are some places where you can spend a couple of hours in a car and still be in the same county as you were when you started, hopefully while lapping up some beautiful sights and sounds along the way.

Plenty of you with an interest in geography will probably have a good grasp of the biggest counties in Ireland and the smallest, but to you we present a bit of a challenge.

Can you name all of the 32 counties in Ireland in order of their size and beat the clock while you’re at it? Again, that might not sound too difficult, but trying to determine the exact order of the counties stuck in the middle ground might cost you a few precious seconds in the quest for full marks.

Just to clarify, the counties below are listed in order of area, the biggest of which has some 6,600 square kilometres to spare over the smallest.

You have five minutes and we've even given you the province each county is located in as hint.

Go!
