Great excitement over GAA tour to Australia

The GAA confirmed yesterday that EirGrid will be Irish team sponsors for the upcoming International Rules Series games in Australia in November. 

Irish team manager Joe Kernan will take his charges to Adelaide on Sunday 12th November and Perth on Saturday 18th November. 

This year sees the competition returning to a two-game series.

EirGrid, who are also the u-21 football sponsors and timings partners, partnered with the GAA as series sponsors in 2015 when the games were played in Dublin and will fill the role of team and jerseys sponsors this time around.

GAAGO have also been confirmed as secondary sponsors while O’Néills have revealed the new Irish team jersey which will be worn in the two tests and is available now.

GAA president Aogán Ó Fearghail said: “I am pleased that the International Rules Series is coming into sharp focus so soon after the completion of our inter-county championships.

“Once again Joe Kernan will prepare the team with a highly experienced backroom team that includes Pádraic Joyce, Dermot Earley and Darragh Ó Sé. We are delighted that the series has reverted to a two-game competition and we look forward to working with EirGrid to ensure that the series connects with the largest audience possible,” he added.
