Electric Ireland has launched a new ‘GAA Minor Moments’ podcast featuring stories from some of Ireland’s sporting greats.

Every Tuesday, well-known Irish stars will share memories from their early sporting careers, reflecting on the defining moments of playing Minor and how it shaped them, both on and off the pitch.

The podcast will run for ten weeks over the course of the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Championship, featuring a new guest each week from a star-studded line-up. The show is presented and produced by Fergal O’Keeffe, host of the Travel Tales Podcast series.

Guests will include Jamesie O’Connor, Niall Quinn, Sean Cavanagh, Mick Galwey and many more as they reflect on their time spent playing Minor and shed light on some great personal stories.

The first episode of the ‘Electric Ireland GAA Minor Moments’ podcast is now live featuring Colin O’Riordan, a winner of the All-Ireland Minor Football Championship with Tipperary in 2011.

O’Riordan talks about his relationship with the current Tipperary Senior Manager, David Power, who managed him to both the Minor All Ireland and the famous Munster Senior Football Championship Final win against Cork in 2020. He also discusses his transition from playing GAA to a life playing professional sport with the Sydney Swans in Australia. 

“Electric Ireland understands the positive impact partaking in the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Championships can have long after the championship ends,” said Brand, Sponsorship and PR Manager at Electric Ireland, Sarah Sharkey.

“I am delighted that we, at Electric Ireland, are able to share so many great stories from past Minor players as our guests delve into the memories from their Minor careers.”

“We have a terrific line-up of guests and I encourage all sports fans to tune in every Tuesday to learn more about what these great competitions mean to those who have played in them.”
 

Sport for Business Perspective

This promises to be a strong addition to the weekly listening schedule and being based on indepth interviews will have a longer tail than the more news-based podcasts that feature towards the top of the GAA podcast charts.
