GAA Championship Watch 01-02 June / ESB GAA Club
Lots of action again this weekend with plenty ESB interest.
On Saturday evening ESBN’s Tommy Childs & the Limerick footballers head to Cork. Having already accounted for Tipperary who were demoted to Division 3 along side Cork they certainly have a chance. Saturday evening also sees Clare taking on Kerry in the Muster Football championship.
Plenty action in both codes on Sunday and again we have ESB interest in both.
The never-say-die attitude saw Longford earn themselves a reply against Kildare . ESBN & Longford’s Pauric Gill is currently out with an injury but will he hoping that his team can get across the line this time and extend their run in the Championship.
In Ulster, after pulling off some what of a shock against Monaghan, Cavan have earned a spot to face Armagh who needed extra time to see off Down. On what is seen as the ‘easy’ side of the draw one of these two have an Ulster Final to look forward to.
In the hurling, Dublin travel to Dr. Cullen Park to face Carlow in a must win game. Last time out, our very recent addition to the ESB family, ESB Energy’s Caolán Conway came on in the later stages to help secure a draw against Wexford.
Meanwhile in the Munster Hurling Championship, with no points on the board yet both Limerick and Waterford would welcome a win. Also in Munster, Clare take on neighbours and rivals Tipperary – that should be a lively encounter

Croke Park is the fourth largest stadium in western Europe behind Barcelona’s Nou Camp (99,786), Wembley in London (90,000), and the Bernabeu in Madrid (85,454). Not too shabby for a small island like Ireland.
The biggest crowd at Croke Park was in 1961 when 90,556 fans watched County Down play County Offaly in the All-Ireland Football Final.
