O’Donovans star on new RTÉ sports quiz starting this Sunday

Presenter Jacqui Hurley will be joined by regular team captains Shane Byrne and Ruby Walsh throughout the series.

RTÉ WILL LAUNCH their new sports quiz show Know The Score on Sunday night, with Olympic heroes Paul and Gary O’Donovan special guests on the first episode.

Presenter Jacqui Hurley will be joined by regular team captains Shane Byrne and Ruby Walsh throughout the run, with former Ireland international footballer Keith Andrews and Olympic middle-distance runner Ciara Mageean joining the Skibbereen siblings on Sunday.

The brothers, who took silver in the men’s lightweight double sculls, reveal they have been treated like heroes since returning from the Olympic games, with both playing down their achievements, despite also claiming gold at the European Championships, and younger brother Paul going on to win gold at the World Championships in Rotterdam.

“We didn’t win. People think we are Olympic champions or something, we’re not. We won one event this year and everybody seems to forget about that,” Gary said, who also briefly took over presenting duties during the show.

Other guests over the series include AP McCoy, Luke Fitzgerald, Richie Hogan, Joe Canning, Andy Lee, Michael Conlan, Clinton Morrison, Derval O’Rourke, Natalya Coyle, Scott Evans, John Muldoon, Annalise Murphy, Kevin Kilbane, Niamh Briggs, Katie Walsh, Michael McKillop, and David Gillick among others.

Let’s hope it can match the heights of RTÉ’s former sports quiz Know Your Sportas previously highlighted by Second Captains.
