Do you know your GAA facts? Would you like to win tickets to go to the All-Ireland semi-finals or even the finals themselves? If so, you probably should give the Championship Challenge, which is running on Eircom’s GAA-based Experience More, site a go.
It’s a simple, quick-fire quiz in which you have to attempt to answer five questions in as short a time as possible. Get 3/5 right and you’re entered into a weekly draw. Get all five right and you’re in with a shot of topping one of the site’s four leaderboards (one for each province) which will entitle you to some fancy-shmancy corporate tickets to one of the All-Ireland finals.
To be honest, you’d have to be living under a stone to have missed this quiz, given the amount of promotion it’s received throughout the Summer, on tv and radio. Sure, give it a go. It’ll be one way for a Galway hurling fan to get a ticket.
In other challenging news, I’d like to wish Stephen Dodding, our surrogate Irishman (during last year’s European Quiz Championship in Bruges), all the best for his appearance on first episode of the new series of Only Connect. Yes, I know, he’s already done the show so wishing him well doesn’t make too much sense but, still, let’s hope there’s nothing too embarassing on the tape!
Never mind me – I’m probably just jealous that he got to meet Victoria Coren. Anyway, the show airs on Monday next, August 27, at 8.30pm on BBC Four. You should watch it.
