Don’t think anyone would have got one surely? Great question. Was hard finding it.

The players like telling the tale about how proud their mothers were informing the neighbours their son was off to Oxford. It was a game where nothing was spared by all accounts.

Cork scored 5-20 in the 1894 All-Ireland Hurling final against Dublin, who got no points and two goals. No team would ever again get 20 over the bars in a 60 minute All-Ireland hurling final. The next team to get 20 points in a hurling final was Cork in 1970, which was the first 80 minute final.


Galway scored 0 points and 1 goal in the 1928 All-Ireland senior hurling final.

Since then, only one team has failed to score a point (over the bar) in an All-Ireland senior final of any category. Name them.

Was probably Galway again

It’s not senior IC hurling or football

Numerous examples in theAll Ireland Senior finals played by the fairer sex, so is this an exclusionary question @Cheasty

An old one I remember is that in three consecutive All-Irelands (1970, 71 & 72) the losing team scored 5 goals in each game.

The answer is Clann na Gael of Roscommon who lost the 1983 All-Ireland club football final to Portlaoise on a scoreline of 0-12 to 2-0.

“Two goals and no points” are words that immediately remind me of this fella.



That’s one of many answers to the question you set.

The most fatal comment a quiz master has to make - “We accepted both answers”


Had that in a quiz in Dublin 2 one night. In what town is Cusack Park?

Ah jesus. That’s a bad one.

Cabbage Patch Park & Dunnes Stores Park.

We had it in the quiz the other night too.

In brewing what does IPA stand for?

They ended up also accepting Irish Pale Ale.
