Football has been centre stage in the past two weeks but hurling reasserts this weekend with the Leinster and Munster Finals dominating the GAA landscape.
As Galway prepare to take on Kilkenny in the Leinster decider on Sunday, Centra paid a visit to Oranmore, to meet Galway hurling star and All-Ireland winner Gearóid McInerney and his father Gerry – also an All-Ireland winning hurler for Galway.
Owning and running a successful sports shop in the village, Gearóid and Gerry discuss their passion for hurling, their family legacy within the sport, what it’s like to run a family business, as well as the pride Gerry has felt watching his son’s hurling success – culminating in him lifting the Liam McCarthy Cup last year.
Centra introduced their #WeAreHurling campaign to celebrate the hurling passion displayed by people right across the country.
The campaign shines a light on those who devote their lives to the game, from players and partners to volunteers and sponsors.
