GAA Go Games Provincial Days
Littlewoods Ireland will be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give children from all over the country the chance to play in Croke Park Stadium.
The children attending this year’s Go Games, today took part in an innovative photocall on the pitch of the iconic Croke Park to kickstart the event.
The initiative will see over 4,000 children from Leinster and Munster taking part in mini versions of hurling and football blitzes at Croke Park.
Today saw the beginning of the Leinster clubs taking part in the blitzes, and the games continue over the course of a week during the Easter holidays.
This unique occasion is something that all young GAA players dream of, from the moment a child watches an All-Ireland Final on the television or picks up their first hurl.
All Ireland Champion Jackie Tyrrell talks about his memories in Croke Park
Ahead of the launch, Littlewoods Ireland released a video on their Facebook and Twitter channels with ambassador Jackie Tyrrell who is no stranger to Croke Park having won 8 All-Ireland titles on it’s hallowed ground.
The video shows Jackie painting a picture of what Croke Park means to him. It shows the rush of playing in the stadium, the highs and the lows and the first time he stepped out on to the iconic pitch.
Throughout the Go Games Provincial Days, Littlewoods Ireland will be further enhancing the experience for Ireland’s up and coming GAA stars by creating a pitch-side studio.
Following their matches, the children will have the chance to replicate their heroes during post-match interviews and analysis.
The bespoke Littlewoods Ireland studio will be situated on the Croke Park pitch with interviews and content being posted on the Littlewoods Ireland social channels during the week.
