Croke Park Serves Up a Festive Feast of GAA Greats at the Christmas Legends Lunches

Can Tipp topple the Cats this year? Is the current Kilkenny hurling team the greatest there ever was? Can Brian Cody’s team pull off an unprecedented five in a row? These are just some of the questions that will be posed to Tipperary Hurling Legend Babs Keating and former Kilkenny Great Eddie Keher at the Croke Park Legends Christmas Lunches this December.

Kilkenny Hurling Legend Eddie Keher, six time All-Ireland winner with five All Stars to his name and Michael ‘Babs’ Keating, the man responsible for leading Tipperary to All-Ireland Hurling success in 1989 and 1991 will play host to one of two Christmas Legends Lunches with MC Paul Collins in the Croke Park Conference Centre during the festive period.

Cork footballing great Tony Davis and Former Meath Footballer Bernard Flynn will also take centre stage with Paul Collins throwing in the questions. Can Kerry win back to back titles? Why do Cork always faulter in Croker?

These stalwart figures in GAA will recall tales from their respective careers whilst also looking back over an exceptional championship year. The Croke Park Legends Christmas Lunch is the latest innovation from Croke Park, following on from the hugely successful Legends Tour Series which debuted in Summer 2008. Since then many people from Ireland and all around the globe have taken a trip down memory lane with from past and present heroes of the game as they summon upon their memories and stories of the game.
