Castleblayney Hurling Club to host AIB GAA ‘Skills Challenge’ Day
AIB, proud sponsors of the AIB GAA Club Championships are linking up with Castleblayney Hurling Club to celebrate the club’s recent county success and acknowledge the role which the club plays in the community by supporting them in hosting the first ever AIB GAA Skills Challenge Day.
The AIB GAA Skills Challenge Day will take place on Saturday 28th January at Monaghan GAA Training Centre, Cloghan and will be hosted by GAA stars Colm “Gooch” Cooper, Brendan Cummins, Paul Flynn and J.J. Delaney. Each of the four GAA stars will lead teams, made up from the club’s underage panels, in two competitive sessions (12.30pm and 14.15pm) involving a series of interactive and challenging hurling and football skills.
Club members and those in the local community are encouraged to come along on the day, which gets underway at 11.45am to show their support for the club and join in the celebration of Castleblayney Hurling Club and its achievements. 2FM will be broadcasting live from the club grounds and there will be plenty of activity happening off pitch with interactive hurling and football games, face painting, spot prizes and entertainment to engage family members of all ages.
Supporting clubs and communities has been at the heart of AIB’s sponsorship strategy for years and AIB want to acknowledge the huge achievement and honour it is for a club to win it’s county final. The AIB GAA Skills Challenge Day is a chance for the club to celebrate their achievements and to thank their local community and members for their ongoing support

Clubs who had won their county finals across both codes and all levels (Junior, Intermediate and Senior) were eligible to host an event, with full support from AIB. A shortlist of county finalist clubs from each province were chosen at random and one club from each province was then selected to host the AIB GAA Skills Challenge in their club.
