The 2013 Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour Series of Croke Park continues this month with Kilkenny’s Noel Skehan. On Thursday 1st August, the Bennettsbridge clubman – who is the holder of nine All-Ireland medals and a seven-time All Star – will revisit the scene of some of his most memorable moments in a glittering hurling career.
The annual tour series, which started in 2008, has been a huge hit with followers of both football and hurling, providing visitors with a unique ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour through the hands-on perspective of their hurling and Gaelic football heroes.
These special tours provide fans with an unforgettable opportunity to hear memories and anecdotes first hand from players who thrilled Croke Park crowds and became household names in the process.
Hurling Legends who have participated in previous years include Anthony Daly, Babs Keating, Eddie Keher, Jimmy Barry Murphy, Brian Cody, Joe McDonagh, Brian Whelehan and George O’Connor as well as the legendary voice of gaelic games, Michéal Ó Muircheartaigh.
The Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour with Noel Skehan is scheduled to take place on Thursday 1st August at 7pm. The tour includes a trip to the newly-refurbished GAA Museum which is home to many exclusive exhibits and features new galleries celebrating great teams and players, including the Four-in-a-Row teams and a new display on the current Hurler of the Year – Henry Shefflin.
