Great Arts Quiz 2014 answers and winner

As always it was the picture gallery that tripped you up. Our Christmas Quiz attracted its usual dedicated following and the many nearly correct slew of entries that flooded onto my desk were yet again testament to the nation's cultivation. But some of our artistic images had you baffled with Derek Mahon morphing into Hugo Hamilton, Liz Nugent becoming Mairia Cahill and Monica Bellucci completely confounding many entrants who thought she was either Nigella Lawson or Amal Clooney. Marriage to gorgeous George does not an artistic icon make - she's a human rights lawyer.

And some of you thought that by simply filling in your name and address I'd award you our fabulous prize of a break at lovely Ballynahinch Castle, pictured, in Connemara.

The people at the castle, which was recently voted no 1 hotel in Ireland by the readers of Conde Nast traveller Magazine, generously donated a two night stay for two with dinner, a brace of breakfasts and a boat trip round Roundstone bay for two. This stunning prize goes to David Timlin from Ennis in County Clare. Congrats to him and well done to all who entered.
