Is 2016 the year of underdog sporting champions?
A few weeks ago, Leicester City defied the odds and won the English Premiership, their first-ever top-level football championship, after being in existence for 132 years.
Last Saturday, Connacht pulled off an equally admirable feat, beating Leinster in the Guinness Pro 12 final in Edinburgh, their first major trophy in their 121-year history.
Could this be Mayo’s year for Sam, having not won it since 1951? Or, how about Roscommon, who had a very good run in the football league? They have been waiting for an All Ireland since 1944.
While we are at it, it must be the Republic of Ireland to win the European Championship!
