Are You a Championship Man?

For the last number of summers, the adventures of Championsip Man have been chronicled every Thursday evening on RTE’s Drivetime Sport programme by broadcaster Liam Horan. Help us find every Championship Man in Ireland, or abroad. Take the test and find out if you're one.

Championship Man lives, eats, and breathes the GAA. From his local club, to the top of the Hogan, he is an ever-present: with his wife, and four children, alongside him. He has attended reunions of old teams, sidled up to inter-county managers on Jones’ Road, and it’s a bad week if he doesn’t get down to see the county team train at least once, and usually more, during the championship months. Refer friends you think might fit the bill. Championship Men can be male or female, though not at the same time. [NOTE THAT QUESTIONS 1 and 2 ARE FOR GOTOQUIZ.COM'S RESEARCH PURPOSES ONLY]
