The Legends Tour with Cyril Farrell
Galway Hurling legend and Sunday Game panelist, Cyril Farrell, takes centre stage at Croke Park on a Legends Tour of the stadium. Cyril was at the forefront of the Galway hurling breakthrough having been appointed Galway Senior Manager in 1980, the year Galway went on to win their first senior title since 1923. This success was to herald a new hurling superpower as Galway went on to contest six finals under Farrell’s guidance, four in-a-row between 1985 and 1988 and winning back-to-back All-Ireland titles in 1987 and 1988.

The Legends Tour with Joe Kernan
Former Armagh footballer and Manager Joe Kernan takes part a Legends Tour with GAA Museum staff. In 1977 Joe played with Armagh in the All-Ireland Football Final against Dublin, however, despite Joe scoring two goals Armagh lost. Twenty-five years later Joe again reached an All-Ireland Final against Kerry as Armagh Manager and this time led his side to their first ever All-Ireland title.

The Legends Tour with Liam Griffin
Wexford hurling legend Liam Griffin will join staff of the GAA Museum on a Legends Tour of Croke Park.
