For the second year, the Bord Gáis Energy GAA Legends Tour series is going online, with fans able to join their heroes, who will give fascinating insights into careers that were packed with brilliant moments. The virtual tours, which start on Wednesday 7 July, will feature in-depth interviews with the GAA Museum and eight Legends and will be available to watch weekly on Bord Gáis Energy's Rewards Club webpage and on Croke Park's website and social channels.

As always, the line-up of Legends is sure to have fans keen to join in. Seán Boylan managed Meath to four All-Ireland titles, Noelle Healy is the winner of four All-Stars and four All-Ireland medals and three-time All-Star Ken McGrath is a Waterford folk hero.

They will be joined on the Legends roster for 2021 by Noel Lane (Galway), Tom Dempsey (Wexford), Mickey Linden (Down), Declan Browne (Tipperary) and Tomás Mulcahy (Cork).

Bord Gáis Energy Retail Director Colin Bebbington said: “We’re very proud of our long association with the GAA Museum and are delighted to bring the eighth season of the Bord Gáis Energy GAA Legends Tour series to GAA fans. Seán, Noelle and Ken are all rightly regarded as greats of the games and big thanks to them an all our other legends for taking part. We’re excited to hear from them over the course of the coming months. Our partnership with the GAA stretches back well over a decade now, and I’d like to thank the GAA for their continued support.”

GAA Museum Director Niamh McCoy said: “Last year the tours moved online, and it enabled us to bring the stories and insights from these incredible players to a wider audience. The Bord Gáis Energy GAA Legends Tours are always a highlight of our summer season at the GAA Museum and we look forward to resuming them in Croke Park in the future. This year, we hope people tune in and enjoy the online tours once again. The line-up is fantastic, and we’d like to thank all the legends for taking the time to tell us their stories and being part of our summer programme.”
