I don't think it was incredibly easy; I got all the answers, but they weren't immediately obvious. Nicely done.

This teaser was so boring. On the second one, 'competed in a race'= ran?! IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

Very easy except for the bonus. I never even thought of zeal for devotion. I about covered all the other words for it, but nothing worked. . This was fun though!

Zeal: a strong feeling of interest and enthusiasm that makes someone very eager or determined to do something (got the rest)
Maggiethe8th*us*

I, too, got stuck on Ireland. Shameful But felt redeemed with the bonus
