    Announcements

    You may be aware that one of ESB Networks Supervisors who is based in Finglas, North Dublin is a contestant on this years’ Dancing With The Stars. This is our very own Paul Brogan who many of you will know is also a former star for the Dublin GAA Senior Football Team.

    Anyone who has tuned into the first two episodes will know that Paul and his dance partner Salome are up against some serious competitors, and this Sunday will be the first time that a contestant will be voted out of the competition. Paul and Salome have been tirelessly putting in a lot of hard work and effort in their own free time these past couple of months and have been doing a wonderful job in entertaining the nation.

    So, could I please ask for your support this Sunday by tuning into RTE One at 6:30pm and when the time comes to vote that you choose for Paul and Salome to stay in the competition, but here’s the kicker!! All ESB mobile phone accounts are prohibited from sending premium SMS texts messages so you will need to ask a loved one or a friend to vote on your behalf with each SMS text costing €0.60c.

    Thank you all in advance and I hope you enjoy this Sundays’ dance off.

    Announcements

    We are delighted to be able to share the news of our new partnership with the Camogie Association, which will see us come on board as the title sponsor of the Electric Ireland Camogie All-Ireland Minor Championships and the Electric Ireland Camogie Third Level Championships, along with the Camogie Association’s Hurl With Me programme.
    We have supported the development of young players in the GAA for the last 10 years, so we are extremely excited to now be able to extend the same support to female players across the country. Using our invaluable sponsorship experience we hope to bring Camogie to a new audience and to help raise the profile of the sport.
    This sponsorship reaffirms our passion and commitment to the support and development of young players. Supporting the game across grassroots, Higher Education and Intercounty levels is important to us as we understand the lasting impact that all levels have in creating the future stars of the game.
    Speaking at yesterday’s launch, Pat Fenlon, Executive Director, welcomed the new partnership with the Camogie Association: “We, at Electric Ireland, look forward to working closely with the Camogie Association to bring these competitions to life and highlight the incredible talent of young Camogie players across Ireland. The “Hurl With Me” programme is a key element of this partnership, getting hurls into the hands of 7 – 10 year old girls. We want to create an excitement and energy in the sport from a young age.”
    Stay tuned for what will surely be an exciting time to come and follow @ElectricIreland to keep up to date with the Electric Ireland Camogie Third Level Championships and the Electric Ireland Camogie All-Ireland Minor Championships on social media.
