Eight lucky hurling fans will experience a unique journey to this year’s GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Final.
Four fans from Kilkenny and four from Tipperary are in with a chance to travel up for the match in ultimate VIP-style as they make their way to Croke Park by helicopter thanks to Guinness, official sponsor of the GAA All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship.
Kilkenny’s Eddie Brennan and All-Ireland veteran DJ Carey lined out alongside Tipperary’s Lar Corbett and former All-Ireland winner Tommy Dunne recently to launch the Guinness Hurling Helicopter Competition which runs until Wednesday the 1st September.
Fans should tune into The Last Word on Today FM or check out www.guinness.com for details on how to win the trip.
To help add to the excitement of match day, Guinness, in association with The Last Word, will host Guinness Hurling Supporters Outside Broadcast Events in the lead-up to the big day at GAA HQ. The first event will take place in Langtons, Kilkenny, on Thursday 2nd September, followed by a similar event in Tipperary on Friday 3rd September.
Joining Matt Cooper will be former legends of the game from both counties.
Barry Fitzpatrick, Guinness Brand Manager, commented, “All-Ireland Final day is a day full of excitement and drama on the pitch. Once the teams line out in the parade, a massive sense of pride and anticipation spreads amongst the crowd – Croke Park really is the only place to be at 3.30pm! What better way to celebrate the occasion than to travel to the game by helicopter! I also hope the fans get behind their team and come along to the supporters’ events – it’ll be a great start to the weekend. ”
