GAA announces 2011 launch plans

Two of the country's most progressive clubs are to host the launches of the 2011 football and hurling championships, the GAA has revealed.

The football launch will take place in St Finbarr's GAA Club in Cork on May 4, and a week later, on May 11, Cuchullains Dunloy, Co. Antrim take centre stage when they host the hurling championship event.

"These media events are amongst the highest profile we organise and the decision to hold them in the excellent facilities as offered by these club units, creates a tangible link between the highest level of our games and the all important club scene which produces and nurtures the top talents in both football and hurling who captivate massive audiences on memorable Croke Park summer days," said GAA president Christy Cooney.
