ŠKODA bring Newstalk Sport Saturday to St. Johns GAA Club Sligo

Sport Saturday with Ger Gilroy to be broadcast.

GAA legends on hand to undertake skills and coaching sessions

Burns Car Sales will host a ŠKODA GAA Club day at St. Johns GAA Club Carraroe on Saturday, 14th July ahead of Sligo’s clash with Mayo in the Connacht Senior Football championship final on Sunday, 15th July. As part of the day, Newstalk Sport Saturday with Ger Gilroy will be broadcast from St. Johns GAA Club Carraroe on Saturday, 14th July.

Newstalk 106-108 fm launched its coverage of the 2012 GAA All-Ireland Senior Championships earlier this year and announced ŠKODA as the station’s new GAA broadcast sponsor. As part of ŠKODA’s sponsorship, Newstalk & ŠKODA will be undertaking five live broadcasts with the Newstalk Sport Saturday team, from local GAA clubs around the country.

There will be something for everyone with Armagh GAA legend Oisin McConville giving football lessons and coaching sessions to the kids whilst the Newstalk Sports Team will be giving full analysis of the GAA Championships ahead.

Speaking ahead of the live broadcast, Ger Gilroy, Newstalk 106-108 fm, said: “We are delighted to be broadcasting live from Sligo in the build up to the Connacht Senior Football final and I have no doubt that the passionate Sligo GAA fans will turn out in force to create an electric atmosphere for the live show. This is Newstalk’s second year providing alternative live national commentary on Championship weekends and you can be sure that the Newstalk sports team and extended panel of star analysts will deliver the best information, entertainment and analysis along with laughter, drama and controversy, throughout the 2012 season”

We too are delighted to be able to bring Newstalk to the local area especially ahead of the Connacht Football final. It is great to see ŠKODA getting involved in a national GAA Sponsorship in Newstalk and bringing it to local communities such as Carraroe. The ŠKODA range offers excellent value for money and we look forward to a great day out.

We will provide entertainment and refreshments on the day.  There will be spot prizes and freebies up for grabs making it a great day out for all the family.

What’s more we will be giving you the chance to get a first look at the newest member of the ŠKODA family – the Citigo.

So we hope to see you this Saturday the 14th of July from 2pm for a great day out!
