Know Your Sport is an Irish sports quiz show produced by RTÉ between 8 October 1987 and 1 April 1998.[1] The show was presented by George Hamilton and featured Jimmy Magee and Mary Hogan as scorekeeper.

Rounds of questions included the "specialist subject", "great moment in sport", "mystery guest" and "buzzer" rounds.

In 2009 an appeal to re-introduce the show to RTÉ's schedule gathered support on networking website, Facebook.[citation needed]
