Following on from the success of last year’s series, the Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tours are up and running this summer at Croke Park. Dublin great Ciaran Whelan and Waterford star Tony Browne were at GAA Headquarters today to officially launch the 2014 tours.

A high profile line-up of stars have been confirmed as hosts of the tours throughout the summer.  Tony Browne and Kilkenny’s Eddie Brennan have already taken tour groups around the stadium, reliving some of their favourite memories from their glittering inter county careers.  GAA legends such as Brendan Cummins, Brian Corcoran and Maurice Fitzgerald will also act as hosts later in the summer.

Next Saturday, 19th July, Kildare’s Johnny Doyle takes up the mantle.  Doyle will look back on his own time in the Kildare jersey and will also look ahead to Sunday’s Leinster Football Final.

Tanya Townsend, Sponsorship Manager at Bord Gáis Energy commented, “We are delighted to launch the 2014 Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tours.  Our customers will once again be able to spend time in the company of some of their GAA heroes through our Rewards Club which will give them the chance to win places on the tours.  They’ll get exclusive access to some of the biggest names in hurling and football from down through the years, get the chance to talk to them about their successes and ask them what it was like to represent their counties.”

Mark Dorman, Director GAA Museum said, “The Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tours are going from strength to strength and we’re delighted to have once again secured a star-studded group of hosts for the 2014 series.  The tours are a truly unique experience, allowing participants the opportunity to get the inside track from some of the greats of Gaelic Games.

We would like to thank Bord Gáis Energy for their support of the series.  We’re looking forward to another summer of magical memories”.
