Wednesday, 1st July, 2020 6:28pm

Cork people already know we’re the best in the country at sport, now is the chance to prove it! 

An online quiz to be crowned Ireland’s biggest sports fan is set for next week, with questions set by some famous names including Paul McGrath, Padraig Harrington and Joseph O’Brien.

The sporting heroes are amongst a number of top stars who have designed questions for the Ultimate Sports Quiz in aid of humanitarian aid agency, GOAL. The online quiz will be hosted by author and GOAL ambassador, Paul Howard, better known as Ross O’Carroll-Kelly.

People are invited to test their sporting knowledge and register for the virtual quiz which will raise funds for GOAL’s Covid-19 response in 14 countries around the world. The quiz takes place on 9 July at 6.30pm. The entrance fee is €10.

Other sporting heroes who have set quiz questions for the quiz include former Dublin footballer Alan Brogan, rugby international Jenny Murphy, runner Ciara Mageean, hockey international Roisin Upton, Kilkenny hurler Richie Power and boxer Andy Lee.

Quiz host Paul Howard said: “This quiz is an excellent opportunity for Cork sports buffs to test their knowledge while we await the return of live sport. And who better to set the questions than our sporting heroes who know their sport better than most, and who have made such a huge contribution on the sporting field.”
