What are your most memorable GAA moments?
EirGrid, the state-owned company that manages and operates Ireland’s national grid launched the “EirGrid Moments in Time” campaign as part of its timing partnership with the GAA.
The campaign will culminate with a club in each province winning a digital clock and scoreboard. To launch the initiative EirGrid has conducted research amongst 300 GAA supporters to establish some of their best and most memorable GAA moments.
92% of GAA fans said that their first time in Croke Park stood out as a childhood memory, with 57% stating it was their father who brought them. Dads remain top of the pops when it comes to attending GAA matches as a quarter (25%) of people surveyed said their favourite person to go to a match with was their Dad.
GAA fans who want to take part in the EirGrid Moments in Time competition can enter by posting a picture highlighting a special GAA moment from the championship on their Twitter or Instagram using #EirGridGAA & tagging the specific provincial board. We want to see them all.
