Quiz Description

I had the spiritual sequel for my Welsh Sports quiz accepted for next year's LL calendar:
1DS: Scottish Sports will take place August 17, 2017.
(worth mentioning, the 1DS will be a lot easier and more American-friendly than both Welsh Sports and this quiz.)

In order to work through the sequence of Celtic Sport quizzes I am giving this short quiz about sports on the Isle of Man.
