the Hennikinen contains the name of a Roman god, and if you don't get it now, the Pennikinen applies to you :wink:

Have you really been snowed under with work all this time? Poor you :laughter:

no I'm afraid it's not "mercurial", but I must apologise for my foolish wisecrack, and we both know that you are the reverse of stupid - I just can't resist making a poor pun. Anyway, the words are actually nouns, but the first is acting adjectively - great help :laughter:. The god is a lot sexier than Mercury, that the "point"

possible rhyme between Lord and Ordeal, but I don't think there is a resealable bag called an eel?

Wrong interpretation of "peer", and "trial" is very relevant.

I'm not getting far - I suppose the meaning of "peer" is connected with equality? Resealable bags seem to be called "grip seal" - relevant?

I assume this is Ulster, for which I can't even think of a rhyme. Apart from that, I was thinking "jury", and Newry is in Ulster, so... no good :D

Don't seek a rhyme for "jury" :they were lacking in trials here.

Diplock is correct. Never heard of a "clicklock" bag, though... :-)
