Electric Ireland has joined forces with four Intercounty GAA stars to launch the 2020 Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon, Sigerson and Higher Education Championships.
Electric Ireland’s First Class Rivals campaign celebrates unexpected alliances formed by County rivals coming together in pursuit of a common goal to win some of the most coveted titles in GAA.
Although bound to their county through a traditional allegiance, intercounty footballers Robert Finnerty (NUIG and Galway) and Eoin O’Donoghue (NUIG and Mayo) and intercounty hurlers, Darragh Fitzgibbon (UCC and Cork) and Mark Kehoe (UCC and Tipperary) will put their county rivalries aside as they battle it out for the prestigious Electric Ireland Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cup titles in 2020 with their colleges.
NUIG and Mayo Footballer, Eoin O’Donoghue, says The Higher Education Championships are a brilliant way to start the year. Although some of us are usually divided by county lines, the opportunity to join up and play with one another is an experience he is really relishing.
