    Amateur Boxing.
    And I seem to remember as a child, winning a competition for driving a nail into a block of wood. Not sure if I got a medal though.

    Chess (I've won a bunch of stuff, including the Leinster U19 individual title, and an All-Ireland Schools U16s team title) and swimming (a bunch of minor medals from my youth). I've a couple of trivial GAA medals somewhere too, but I think they're probably all internal stuff. I gave up a lot of it as a kid, the swimming on medical advice.

    If you only knew how to tip a hat you'd be the ultimate gaelic athlete.

    Is that a reference to Christy Ring?

    Nope, I'm referring to the quintessential Irish tradition of playing tip-in-the-hat as cited by Archbishop Croke.
