Question of the Day

Mar 05, 2014

Yesterday's Question of the Day asked …  What does RTÉ (the national public service broadcaster of Ireland) stand for (in Gaelic), and what is its English translation? That would be Raidió Teilifís Éireann, which translates to Radio [and] Television of Ireland.

Congratulations to M. Edward Borasky, who was the very first person to tweet in both answers correctly. Felicitations also to Edward TennerGeraldine HerbertCindi Lash with Pittsburgh MagazineJeanne KirkKim DSPaul JJ PayackMolly Darden@.l.interpretations,Claudine LaforceRachel Roh, and La Leaf for also answering correctly!

In keeping with the theme: This Irish playwright wrote satirical columns in The Irish Times (under the name Myles na gCopaleen) that targeted government and literary elite, among others. Who was he? And what did his pseudonym mean?
