Irish Olympian Thomas Barr is the final contestant on The42 Christmas Quiz

Ireland’s top sports stars face 10 questions on some of 2016′s biggest moments.


FROM ROBBIE BRADY to Rio de Janeiro, 2016 has been another busy year for Irish sport.

But how well do you remember those big moments and the people who were at the heart of it all?

We tested some of Ireland’s top sports stars with 10 questions in The42’s first-ever Christmas quiz.

And after nine contestants, Kilkenny hurling legend Jackie Tyrrell stands on top of the leaderboard and on the bring of being crowned the inaugural champion.

But before we do that, there’s time for one final contestant: Irish 400m hurdler and Olympian Thomas Barr.

Can he topple Tyrrell to claim the gold?
