Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

Parliament of the United Kingdom
|Long title||An Act for the Regulation of Municipal Corporations in Ireland|
|Chapter||3 & 4 Vict. c. 108|
|Royal Assent||10 August 1840|
|Commencement||25 October 1840|
|Repealing legislation||Local Government Act 2001 (Ireland), Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 1972 (Northern Ireland)|
The Municipal Corporations Act (Ireland) 1840 (3 & 4 Vict. c. 108), An Act for the Regulation of Municipal Corporations in Ireland, was passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom on 10 August 1840. It was one of the Municipal Corporations (Ireland) Acts 1840 to 1888.
The Act followed similar lines to the Municipal Corporations Act 1835 which reformed municipal boroughs in England and Wales. Prior to the passing of the Act, there were sixty-eight borough corporations in Ireland, many of them were ineffective, some virtually defunct and none of them in any way representative of their populations. The Act dissolved all but ten of the corporations.
The ten reformed corporations, which were named in Schedule A to the Act were to be styled as Mayor, Aldermen and Burgesses, with the exception of Dublin where the title Right Honourable Lord Mayor was retained.
|1||Belfast||Antrim and Down|
|3||Cork (County of the City)||Cork|
|4||Drogheda (County of the Town)||Louth and Meath|
|5||Dublin (County of the City)||Dublin|
|6||Kilkenny (County of the City)||Kilkenny|
|7||Limerick (County of the City)||Limerick|
|10||Waterford (County of the City)||Waterford|
Under section 13 of the Act, the remaining 58 borough corporations were dissolved on 25 October 1840. The extinguished boroughs were listed in schedules B and I of the Act. Boroughs in schedule B could petition for a grant of a charter restoring borough status, as could any town with a population of more than 3,000. Boroughs in Schedule I were already effectively extinct at the time of the passing of the Act, and so were not permitted to apply for such a charter.
Only one town, Wexford, applied for a charter restoring borough status, which was granted in 1846.
Boroughs in Schedule B
|3||Athlone||Roscommon and Westmeath|
|5||Bandon or Bandon Bridge||Cork|
|9||Carrickfergus (County of the Town)||Antrim|
|31||Portarlington||Queen's County and King's County|
Boroughs in Schedule I
Many of the extinguished boroughs had an additional form of local government in place, in the form of commissioners appointed under the Lighting of Towns (Ireland) Act, 1828. Where such a body existed, it was deemed to be the successor to the corporation. Section 16 of the Act provided that any borough dissolved with property worth more than £100, and which did not have commissioners under the 1828 Act, should have a board of "Municipal Commissioners" established.
