Drivetime Sport’s Irish Soccer clips

March 30, 2009 in Quizzes

Somebody behind the scenes at Drivetime Sport on Radio One must be a quizzing fan. Perhaps it’s Des Cahill himself?  Where other shows would have one simple question and a phone number, competitions on RTÉ’s early evening show tend to engage the brain and the trivia gland.

Last week, in the buildup to the Irish football team’s two big games against Bulgaria and Italy, they ran a competition for a trip for two to the away game in Bari on Wednesday night, with flights and accommodation thrown in.

Entry was simple. Each night, from Monday to Thursday, they played the same three clips, back-to-back. All one had to do was email in the names of the players who scored immediately after the commentary was cut off.  Sort of like a ‘What happened next’ round.

GAA Golden Ticket

January 27, 2009 in Quizzes

charlie-golden-ticketRTÉ Sport and the GAA are giving away a ‘Golden Season Ticket’ this week on Drivetime Sport.

This is basically the gaelic games equivalent of the Golden Ticket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and will get you into any GAA game of your choice, anywhere in the country, throughout 2009.  This includes big games in Croke Park and you can even use it more than once a day!  That’s if your transport capabilities are up to the task, admittedly.  Still, it’s a great prize.

Anyways, you’ve probably guessed that I wouldn’t be mentioning it here if a quiz wasn’t involved and you’d be right.  They’re running a quiz all this week to find a suitable person to bestow this prize on.

Each night from Monday to Wednesday, a celebrity quizmaster will ask three questions.  Judging by the standard of Monday’s questions (asked by Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh), this could be one of the hardest quizzes we’ll come across here on the blog.
