My go to sport app

I love the way you're open to all sports or at least most sports. I know a few angry responders get angry that ye don't get them all or ye forget some small detail. But I suppose you'll never satisfy unhappy people. Well done for all ye do. Keep up the good work.

Used to be better

The 42 used to have a special section for scores
They got rid of it about a month ago. it is still good but please bring back the scores of the matches
Besides that if you like Irish sport GET THIS APP
The 42 has great journalists which makes the articles fun to read
