As the Boyle GAA Know Your Sport competition enters its final stages, its getting very very close at the top. While long time leader Henry Clifford remains on top his lead is now just one point and there are still lots of contestants in with a shout of winning the prizes. Attention now turns to the rugby word cup.
Know Your Sport Table 20 September 2015
With Kenya and Jamaica winning 7 golds each at the World Athletics Championship, there was very little movement at the top of the table in Boyle GAA’s Know Your Sport competition. Henri Clifford, Trevor Conroy and Gerry Nerney retain the three top spots but David Galway, Maureen Keenehan and Brendan McDermott are new entrants into the top ten and have put themselves well into contention for the top prizes.
With five events still remaining the competition is still wide open. Check the latest standings below:

After the Show Jumping at the RDS the three top positions have remained unchanged in Boyle GAA’s Know Your Sport Compeition. However, by correctly predicting that Ireland would emerge victorious in the Aga Khan Nations Cup, Eamon Davey, Justin McCormack and the O’Connors have put themselves well into contention for the prize money as the competition enters the business end.
Next up is the World Athletics Championships at the end of August.
A much delayed finish to the British Open made no change to the top spot as Henri Clifford retains a 4 point lead from his nearest challenger Trevor Conroy. After predicting provincial wins for Monaghan and Mayo along with correctly predicting the outcome of the Open, Peter Keane, David McKenna and Ray Hannon have climbed up the table and are well placed to challenge for the prizes.
This brings a hectic July to a close and there’s now just seven events left in Boyle GAAs Know Your Sport competition. In August the focus is turns to Show Jumping and World Championship Athletics.
See where you rank here:
With the Champions League final decided, Steve Tonry has moved further ahead in Boyle GAA’s Know Your Sport prediction competition. Steve now holds an eight point lead over a trio in joint second that includes Boyle’s Gerry Nerney and Henri Clifford and St Croans’ Shane Smyth.
With 11 events now completed, the competition is nearing the half way mark. There’s 7 events to be decided in July so there’s still loads of time for movement up and down the table.
We’ll be back again in early July as the GAA Provinicial Finals take centre stage.
