But I know you’ve scanned quickly down through all that running nonsense just to get to the Alan Erwin Quiz.

First of all, last week’s answer – Alan Erwin. So well done again if you got that one.

This week’s question is:

Answers to

I can’t find any decent tunes about Antrim (nope, not doing that one about green glens) so here is one about a garden. And it’s a tune. And I know these links are thinner than my highlight reel but give me a break. Run somewhere with better links!

Until next week, behave.
