Today marks the third anniversary of the death of legendary sports journalist Con Houlihan and Independent.ie has decided to mark the occasion with a challenge.

The Kerry native was one of Ireland's most loved and respected writers covered a wide range of sports.

Houlihan featured in the Sunday World, the Evening Herald, and The Irish Times, but it was his back-page column and articles for the Evening Press that first attracted an enormous readership.

His insight and observations made him a firm favourite throughout the country, but his writing did test the skills of his sub-editors.

Can you make out the line below from an article he penned in 2008?
