Firstly many congratulations to the Dublin Mens & Ladies teams on winning their respective Football championships  – many congrats to the Dubs Captain, James McCarthy – a staunch Ballymun Kickhams man & also our 4 other stars, John & Paddy Small, Evan Comerford & Dean Rock – you’ve made our Club very proud.

And  then Hello to all our quiz predictors & supporters – this is our 2nd update for our 2023 Sports Quiz – 11 competitions have now reached their finale & we now have just 7 events left to take place to bring the Quiz to a conclusion.

The 7 events to come are the following sports events – Rugby World Cup, Solheim & Ryder Cups, FAI Mens  & WomensCups & then finally Dublin Football & Hurling Championships.

As previously advised we have had 168 entries & the Prize Fund will be 1700 euro.

We have 31 entries that have 5 correct answers out of 11 – there are another 20 entries with 6 correct answers & we have 6 leading entries who have 7 correct answers.

Without doubt the 4 Golf predictions proved to be very difficult & only John Rahm, winner of the Masters event, proved to be the only correct prediction for the 4 events.

As for the 6 leaders with 7 correct answers – well done to Amy Leonard & Paula Lee, who were correct with their  7GAA  predictions  for all the provincial & All Ireland winners  & then congrats also to David Lynch, Gerry Staunton, Jim Deignan & Ronan Noonan who got 6 out of 7 right, but also had John Rahm as their winner of the Masters.

So as you can see it is very tight at the top – all to play for & best of luck to everybody for the last 7 events.

More Updates to come.

Finally & once again many thanks to you all for your support.

  1. What an achievement in the modern day to provide 6 wonderful and vital players to Dublin’s quest for 5-in -a row. Kickhams should be so proud of these gentlemen you helped nurture and who are part of GAA history. Well done to all their mentors and families for being a huge part of who they are .Ballymun stands out head and shoulders above all in their contribution to this amazing milestone.

    1. Overlooked again? When were you overlooked before? And I’m not a mind reader, I need to be told these things before I can report them. As a club we are all inclusive and have no preference for any gender, creed, colour or sexuality etc.
