LISTEN: All-Ireland winner Seamus Flanagan is looking forward to getting back playing

All Ireland winning Limerick player and UCD hurler Seamus Flanagan says he’s looking forward to his colleges Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup campaign starting next weekend.

The Dublin based side are in a tough group that includes UCC, NUIG and UL.

As part of its First Class Rivals campaign Electric Ireland has announced that Ireland’s leading energy provider will live stream eight key Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cup games on its YouTube channel and GAA Now, bringing fans closer to the action than ever before.

Flanagan has been speaking to Oisin Langan at the launch of the Electric Ireland Sigerson, Fitzgibbon and Higher Education Championships.

All-Ireland winning hurler, University College Dublin’s Seamus Flanagan said, “I think Electric Ireland’s First Class Rivals sums up what the Fitzgibbon Cup stands for. The competition is a highlight for me each year and a big part of that is playing alongside lads that you might not ordinarily have the chance to play with. To play as teammates with some of your biggest rivals from inter-county level gives you a different perspective and challenge and results in what is always a highly competitive championship.”

As part of its First Class Rivals campaign, six of the nation’s greatest Inter-County rivals have teamed up with Electric Ireland to announce thatIreland’s leading energy provider will live stream eight key Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cup games on its YouTube channel and GAA Now, bringing fans closer to the action than ever before.

Speaking on behalf of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, Uachtaráin Seán Ó hÓráin said, “Providing easy access to GAA fans to watch key games in the Electric Ireland Sigerson, Fitzgibbon and Higher Education Championships via a live stream is a big step forward in the promotion of these Championships and a step that the GAA welcomes. These competitions, steeped in history and tradition, showcase the best the GAA has to offer and I’d encourage any GAA fan to tune in to see what is always a highly competitive, exciting display of our national games,
