The University Challenge team facing a question on Laois

Finally a question we all can answer on University Challenge.

It was put to a team from Trinity Cambridge, see tweet video below to see if they could answer it.

"Portarlington, Mountmellick and Laois getting the mention on #UniversityChallenge tonight!" he said.

Come on Laois!
