With Bord Gáis Energy’s GAAGAABox proving a massive hit on its return for a second series, some of its stars got to meet their hurling heroes today.

The Twomey family from Limerick, Harry and daughters Orla, Aisling and Cliodhna, visited St. Patrick’s GAA Club in Limerick and spent some time with current Hurler of the Year Gearóid Hegarty.

Hegarty refused to be drawn on who Limerick would prefer to face from the teams in Quarter Final action this weekend but was more forthcoming on his own living arrangements with two teammates and their three partners in a shared house in Limerick, “just up the road from another six lads on the team.”

No doubt the Twomey’s will have had plenty to say about last weekend’s turnaround against Tipp.

Joe Canning was also on media duties for the sponsor yesterday, a job he has carried out with charm and grace down the years.

This time it was different though as he announced that he was ‘done’ and would not be returning for a 15th season with the Galway senior hurlers.

Last year’s initial five-episode run attracted over 2.5 million views, and this season looks like an even bigger hit.

2021 marks the fifth year of Bord Gáis Energy’s sponsorship of the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship. Bord Gáis Energy is also the sponsor of the Bord Gáis Energy GAA Legends Tour Series of Croke Park. It has been part of the U20 Hurling Championship for more than a decade.
