Ireland's Greatest Sporting Moment RTE 2
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:57:28 PM »
Focusing on the 1980s tonight.

Top 5 are;

- Barry McGuigan
- Eamon Coghlan
- Ray Houghtons Euro 88 goal
- Stephen Roche Tour win
- seamus Darby AI winning goal 82

No mention of Dennis Taylor's world championship win in 1985. Surely that's Ireland's greatest sporting moment of the 1980s?

For some folk Dennis Taylor would not be eligible.

Same way James McClean and Martin O'Neill are not eligible when they are dragging their country to the World Cup?

Seamus Darby by a mile. Strange that a Scots man is going to win it...

Roche’s is definitely the greatest achievement, if not the greatest moment.

Seamus Darby by a mile.
How can that be Ireland's Greatest Sporting moment. Shouldn't even be in the list imo.

Houghton moment a deserved and obvious winner.

Michelle Smith should be the '90s winner so if that's the case.

Ronnie Whelan's goal against the Soviet Union was better. I'd say impossible to decide between  Houghton and Darby.
