Bord Gáis Energy Announce Sponsorship of the Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour Series
4th July 2013
Bord Gáis Energy today announced their title sponsorship of the ever-popular GAA Museum Legends Tour series. The announcement marks the extension of Bord Gáis Energy’s existing partnership with the GAA as sponsors of the Bord Gáis Energy GAA Hurling U-21 Championship since 2008.
The first instalment of the 2013 Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour Series was held last week with former Kildare midfielder Dermot Earley hosting the tour in Croke Park. This evening, former Cork goalkeeping great and Bord Gáis Energy Sports Ambassador Ger Cunningham will regale the most memorable moments of his career in the famous red and white hooped jersey.
GAA legends Pat Gilroy, Ken McGrath and Tommy Dunne are also set to host tours of Croke Park Stadium this summer as part of the Series.
Nicky Doran, Head of Marketing at Bord Gáis Energy commented, “We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with the GAA and support the Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour. Our customers are proud GAA supporters and we are privileged to be able to bring them even closer to their GAA heroes. Bord Gáis Energy customers will have the chance to win places on the Legends Tour via our Bord Gáis Energy Rewards Club and the opportunity to hear memories and anecdotes first hand from players who thrilled Croke Park crowds and became household names in the process”.
Mark Dorman, Director GAA Museum said, “The Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour series has been a huge hit with followers of both football and hurling since it started in 2008. This behind-the-scenes tour given from the perspective of gaelic football and hurling heroes is truly a unique experience for both the Legend and the participants.
We would like to thank Bord Gáis Energy for supporting this fantastic series and all the Legends for generously giving up their time to taking part this year. It is great to be welcoming Cork’s Ger Cunningham this evening and we are looking forward to another seven evenings of sporting memories and nostalgia at the GAA Museum during the course of the summer”.
