The popular Legends series, organised by Croke Park’s GAA Museum, is to go ahead this year on line with All-Ireland winning captains featuring prominently: Eoin Kelly of Tipperary, Kerry’s Dara Ó Cinnéide and Joe Connolly, who gave perhaps the most famous winning speech of all when Galway’s hurlers bridged a 57-year gap in 1980.

Museums won’t open until June 29th and with the ongoing need for social distancing, means that the digital option will ensure that the series, running for more than 10 years and sponsored by Bórd Gáis Energy since 2013, can continue into 2020.

The media release from Croke Park explains: “Similar to the traditional tours, the players will be interviewed by a GAA Museum tour guide about their career, giving people a tour through their earliest memories of playing Gaelic Games, lining out for club and county, their heroes and their Croke Park memories, with the public able to watch online.”
