FATLAD of Northern Ireland

I had a team in the Joker the other night called FATLAD.

None of them were fat, but they were from Northern Ireland.

It turns out the team name is a mnemonic for remembering the names of the six counties that make up Northern Ireland.

  • F – Fermanagh
  • A – Armagh
  • T – Tyrone
  • L – Londonderry
  • A – Antrim
  • D – Down

Obviously, one of these names tends to the controversial, so if you prefer, you can remember FAT DAD:

  • F – Fermanagh
  • A – Armagh
  • T – Tyrone
  • D – London Derry
  • A – Antrim
  • D – Down
