Yes Dysart Kilkenny was the seat of Government of the native Irish both briefly in medieval times and again during the certain unpleasantness in Ireland between Cromwell and the Royalist Anglo-Irish forces. Anyway you're correct and well done it's your go. BTW Am I detecting you might have an Irish connection yourself?

This one is trickier than it sounds John but from memory I think it must be in nine horizontal rows of 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 5 and 6. It adds up to 50 stars that way so hopefully that is the arrangement.
