Ahead of Saturday’s inaugural Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Awards in Croke Park, Electric Ireland have produced a video looking behind the scenes at the casting of the trophies that will be handed over to the stars of the Minor Championship throughout the summer.
They visited the CAST Bronze Foundry, where Irish bronze sculpture specialist Jarlath Daly along with commentator Micheal O’Muircheartaigh designed and created the first Minor Star awards.
The aim of the awards is to honour not just the players but everyone who has played a part in supporting these Minor Stars including their families, teammates, clubs, schools and counties.
The awards also serve to highlight that there is nothing minor about playing Minor football.
Having been the sponsor of the GAA All-Ireland Minor Championships since 2012, Electric Ireland has committed to continuing the partnership until 2021.
Electric Ireland and the GAA are among the more than 230 organisations that play an active part of the Sport for Business community.
Sport for Business features regular interviews with our members providing exclusive insight on the relationships that work best for sport and business.
