Each weekend we take a look back on the sporting highs from across Ireland and around the world through the medium of numbers.

5

The number of medals won by Irish boats at the World Cup event in Lucerne over the weekend. Gold for Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy, Silvers for Lydia Heaphy, Monica Dukarska with Aileen Crowley, and Ronan Byrne with Phil Doyle, and Bronze for Sanita Puspure.

2

The finishing position of Triathlete Carolyn Hayes at the World Cup event in Lisbon, going a long way towards securing a place on the plane to Tokyo for the Limerick athlete.

17

The number of goals scored in Division One of the Allianz Football League over the weekend, with Monaghan and Dublin each raising the green flag on four occasions. In the equivalent round two of fixtures in 2020, there were only eight goals across the four matches.

6

The number of goals, but also the number of individual goalscorers for Dublin Ladies Footballers in their impressive season-opening win over Waterford in the Lidl National Football league.

1

The number of overtakes in the 78 laps of the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday. Great for the glamour and excitement in qualification but questions over whether it is still fit for purpose in the modern era of F1 racing.

41

A record number of Bundesliga goals in a single season for Robert Lewandowski for Bayern Munich, breaking a near 50-year record set by Gerd Muller for the German Champions.

UEFA, the GAA, Rowing Ireland and Triathlon Ireland are among more than 250+ members of the Sport for Business network of sporting and business organisations working together across a number of key areas.
