Dublin football star Michael Darragh MacAuley joined eircom’s GAA ambassadors Tomás O’Sé, Ciaran Whelan, David Brady and Brendan Devenney in eircom’s head office in Dublin today to launch their online platform for supporters of this summer’s GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship.
Now in its fifth year as sponsor, eircom continues to provide a host of online initiatives throughout the championship for GAA enthusiasts across the country. This season, eircom is introducing a new feature where public can use the new audio social network BOAST (www.boast-talk.com) for free to record and share their views on players of the championship via a dedicated eircom GAA channel. eircom’s best ‘Boaster’ this season will win tickets to the All-Ireland Senior Football Final, along with a place as a panellist on eircom’s regular post match review videos alongside two of eircom’s ambassadors!
eircom ambassadors (O’Sé, Whelan, Brady and Devenney), who span the four provinces, will be giving their views and insights on all the action this summer on www.eircom.ie/gaa. The popular ‘Your Shout Counts’ has returned, giving GAA fans the chance win prizes while getting behind their favourite player or county team by “shouting” on eircom’s website.
The Win, Lose or Draw game will put fans’ knowledge of the championship to the test as they attempt to predict the outcomes of upcoming Championship matches. Fans can also go up against former football county stars as eircom’s four ambassadors host their own league which will be open to everyone to join. In addition, provincial winners of Win, Lose or Draw will win tickets to the All-Ireland Final. Fans can also show off their expertise in the sport via the Weekly Quiz which offers up weekly match tickets and smartphones as prizes.
Speaking at the launch, Lisa Comerford, Director of Brand and Communications, eircom, said; “We are thrilled to be entering our fifth year as sponsor of the All-Ireland Football Senior Championship and we are very proud to be offering GAA fans one of the best interactive experiences online throughout the season. Launching our dedicated eircom GAA channel on the BOAST app is extremely exciting for us, and we hope that supporters are looking forward to becoming real Boasters! “I’ve no doubt it will be another thrilling Championship and we look forward to hearing the views of our Ambassadors throughout the season on our dedicated GAA site.”
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Aogán Ó Fearghail said; “The action of the last few weeks has really captured the imagination of our members and supporters across all four provinces and it reminds us of the importance of our championships. As GAA Football Championship sponsors for the last five years eircom have worked with us to promote our games and I laud their new GAA Boast App which will provide county supporters with a vehicle to give feedback on the teams and games that light up our summer.”
