The 2013 Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour Series of Croke Park continues in August with Tipperary’s Tommy Dunne.

On Saturday August 10, the All-Ireland winning captain and former Hurler of the Year will join staff of the GAA Museum on a unique tour of Croke Park on the eve of the GAA Hurling All-Ireland semi-final clash between Dublin and Cork.

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 Tipperary’s Nicky English and Babs Keating as well as Anthony Daly, Jamesie O’Connor, Eddie Keher, Jimmy Barry Murphy, Brian Cody, Brian Whelehan and the legendary voice of Gaelic games, Michéal Ó Muircheartaigh.

The Bord Gáis Energy Legends Tour with Tommy Dunne is scheduled to take place on Saturday 10th August at 2pm. 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, as well as an interactive skills zone and Hall of Fame.
