    A couple of underage Hurling district medals and something for a representative team in a one off match against another representative team;
    something for bogball (small parish = everyone plays like it or not - didn't care so don't remember what it was);
    something for a testimonial Rugby game for a friend;
    2nd place in a wheelbarrow race when I was 9!
    That question was less stupid, though you asked it in a profoundly stupid way.

    Help me, Arthur Murphy, you're my only hope!

    a proud holder of 2 munster vocational schools gaelic football medals!

    is chess a sport? we never played it on a sports day unlike bohspartisan's favourite games, which always went against me on the day despite meticulous mental and physical preparation and coaching from my dad, though i do have a silver from the obstacle race thanks to an innate ability to extricate myself from all tight spots

    Won a few regional competitions at bowling (ten pin variety) and made the Norn Ireland U16 squad but didn't get selected for the team or indeed pursue the sport any further as was forced into early retirement due to parents views that a sport at which you can smoke and drink when competing isn't really a sport.

    Played BUSA (UK inter universities competition) rugby but didn't get near anything resembling a medal. Also struggled to get anywhere near the ball, but that was acceptable for a forward back in those days.

    I've won a few medals in schoolboy football.

    Though in other sports I've only won medals in hurling (indoor & outdoor) for my primary and secondary schools. I played full-forward but only ever scored goals!

    Officially, it is a sport, but the Irish Government continue to ignore that piece of legislation as it'd mean giving money to Irish chess.

    Handball, Basketball and a mini-World Cup with a full clean sheet through all 7 games.

    Irrelevant but still held dear

    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    I have lots of darts trophies from this past 10 years (hopefully a few more this year!!) from various events that's about the height of my sporting achievements apart from a few medals at school that’s about it .

    County Junior B football medal!

    That's about the height of it which is pretty sad. Loads of underage tennis trophys and medals. A few gaelic runner-up medals. 2 U-10 hurling medals before I found some sense!

    I know this thread isn't about soccer, but I've won the league with my club something like 7 times in the last 8 years....and look like walking the Youths league again this year. Underage soccer in Wexford really is that easy.

    You deserve a medal just for that alone.
    Did you ever notice that in every painting of Adam & Eve, they have belly buttons. Think about that...take as long as you want.

    As far as I'm aware, its one of the features of the new maternity hospital. they award you a medal and a 2 day course in what Cork people have achieved. Its not much of a course, they just spend two days rattling off some of the trophies and testimonies. Most new borns wouldn't go for it, but, well...

    Chess: school and university.
    Table tennis: School (runner up)
    Tennis: Doubles School (my partner was the Leinster champion )
    Cricket: ABout 5 I think as a member or captain of teams that won various leagues at a lowish level.

    Never won a soccer medal despite playing for 15 years or so in the Amateur League.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Yes but the O hAilpin's were born in Australia
    Only won one medal. Primary school internal league when I was in sixth class. The team I was on won. It was a league between 5th and 6th class students. There were two classes in each year. And classes in excess of 40 .
    I did get an award for services to the soccer club in 1996, at the Player of the Year Awards which is the best sporting related award.
    The best other thing I got was a plaque for coming second in a table quiz... well it was a football one. I also won a small cup for a general knowledge quiz.

    not really played any "proper" sports since 16/17 cos of dislocation of the knee ( plus i wasnt much good anyway!!! ), but won a few gaa county ( and league ) titles at u12/u14, won a few medals for soccer as well at school level around 12 just county nothing more ( as there didnt ever seem to be any further to go at that age ). got medals for tennis and table tennis at county level too. won a good few golfing medals, played in connaucht cups and connaucht schools cups ( was very good with a pen and paper in those days . Thats about it really, apart from winning the prestigious local bar pool competition a few years ago ( and getting fierce abuse for playing like steve davis rather than ronnie osullivan/jimmy white ), i have won nothing of note in 10 years or ever really. Had an operation on the knee to see if this can be fixed so hopefully it will and ill be back left full and left corner in gaelic on the sideline in a few months though
