EMERALD ISLE CLUES

Listed below are most of the objects, creatures, people and particularly
interesting places in Emerald Isle. There are some general hints, too. Look
down the alphabetical lists to find what you want to know about and then
turn to the entries indicated by the bracketed numbers to find out about it.
Of course, when you do turn to the answer, you may find that it just gives a
short clue and another number to look up.

Try to only read the clues that you are directed to, otherwise you may learn
too much. A few red herrings have been mixed with the real clues to reduce
the risk of this.

A great deal of care has gone into the preparation of these clues to make
them accurate. If an answer should differ from the game, though, the game is
always right!
