If this RTE Championship Promo doesn’t get you buzzing for the summer, nothing will

The Championship is back, which means it must be summer. Mustn’t it? Well you wouldn’t know by the weather but the GAA fixtures tell a very different story. Last weekend the Connacht Football Championship got underway and New York nearly caused an early shock.
This weekend we see the start of the Leinster and Ulster Football Championships and of course the Leinster Hurling Championship.
Hopefully that means putting away the big winter coats and pulling out the lighter match attire for the road trips and visits to Croke Park. We’ll be glued to the TV coverage, tuned into the Radio broadcasts, and the phones will be glued to our hands to get the latest news and updates.
RTE Sport return and tomorrow they will bring coverage of the Leinster Hurling clash between Dublin and Kilkenny in Parnell Park (2:00pm), and the Connacht Football Quarter Final between Mayo and Galway in Castlebar (4:00pm).
But RTE do what they do best and yesterday released their video promo for this year’s championship coverage. Once again they have outdone themselves, thralling the archives to find some amazing footage to stir up some amazing memories and emotions over the years from the hurling and football championship.
There’s not much more to say, except please enjoy this, and get as excited as we are about this year’s Championship.
