Beacon Hospital All-Ireland 7s Series Launch!
On Monday 27th June, the launch of the Beacon Hospital All-Ireland 7s Series took place in Croke Park. It is an exciting return to the series, after having been postponed for 2 years due to the pandemic.
This year is a milestone as it is the first time all 4 codes of hurling, football, camogie and ladies football will be supported by one title sponsor.
Kevin Foley, Club Chairman of Kilmacud Crokes spoke at the launch. “The Beacon Hospital All Ireland 7s Series will attract visitors from around the country and abroad to great days in the Hurling, Football, Ladies Football and Camogie calendars. This coming together across all four Gaelic codes is a tremendous innovation and is a significant statement in support of equality of participation between men and women in sport”.
Across all 4 codes over 1,100 players participate in the series. After a 2 year break due to the pandemic, there is much anticipation for this year’s event, with players from 32 counties and 4 codes taking part. The Series would not be possible without the 800 plus volunteers from Kilmacud Crokes who help run the events.
“The Beacon Hospital All-Ireland 7s Series is a testament to the community spirit and camaraderie that GAA brings players from all codes across the country. With our partner Kilmacud Crokes, we intend to bring our combined passion for physical health, teamwork and the wellbeing of hearts and minds of local teams to life, and we are delighted to support all four codes as they return for the Series after two years”, said CEO of Beacon Hospital Michael Cullen ahead of the launch.
“Since we embarked on the sponsorship with Kilmacud Crokes, we have met so many players, backroom teams and supporters, who are incredibly passionate about their sport. We are very much looking forward to meeting more through this Series and share our expertise and knowledge in health and wellbeing”, he added.
The events will be played on four consecutive Saturdays in July and August, with each fixture taking place on the eve of their respective All-Ireland Final. The series is hosted by Kilmacud Crokes and games will be played in a number of local pitches, with the final taking place on Kilmacud Crokes’s home pitch, Pairc de Burca.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the Beacon Hospital All-Ireland 7s Series events!
