    Hi I have a form whereby users will select from a number of options
    We need to be able to filter the list based on a number of these selections e.g see all respondents who chose Limerick, Clare and Galway.
    Would data capture via a multiselect dropdown or check boxes work, or would Yes/No responses be better? e.g Clare Yes/No, Galway Yes/No Cavan Yes/No

    List filtering should work with a multi-select join element to a "county" table, which is what I presume you are thinking about. Which also gives you more flexibility for any other reporting you may want to do outside of Fabrik, as it gives you a many-to-many junction table with the selections in it.

    I definitely wouldn't go for a solution using individual, hard wired Yes/No elements. Use a 'county' table, and a multi-select join to it.
