Wednesday 1st May: SPIN South West and Munster GAA are delighted to announce the renewal of their official media partnership for the 2019 GAA Season.

Now in its third year, the partnership was relaunched in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford with brand personnel from both Munster GAA and SPIN South West on site, including SPIN South West Sports Reporter and Presenter, Valerie Wheeler and celebrated GAA players from across the Munster counties.

SPIN South West will be the go-to destination for Munster GAA news, interviews and exclusive ticket giveaways, giving you unrivalled access to everything happening during Munster GAA’s upcoming season.

Speaking about the partnership, Ed Donnelly, Communications Manager for Munster GAA commented: “Munster GAA are looking forward to an exciting summer as the Munster Championship kicks off on May 11th. Last year’s Munster Hurling Championship was arguably the best ever as week after week, games of fantastic skill, passion and sheer drama gripped the nation. Predicting the top three Hurling counties to qualify from the 2019 Munster Championship will be one of the more difficult tasks for any one and that promises to make for another gripping season. In Football, Kerry have captured the Munster title for the past six seasons and are introducing a number of younger players as they seek to bring back Sam Maguire to the Kingdom. Clare, Cork and Tipperary look best placed to upset Kerry’s dominance while Limerick and Waterford will hope to cause an upset in the opening weekend of games. All in all, it promises to be another exciting summer and Munster GAA are delighted to partner with SPIN South West once again to help promote our games, in particular to a younger audience in the province who are our supporters of the future”.

Nessa McGann, Station Manager of SPIN South West also spoke at the launch: “We are so proud to partner for the third year with Munster GAA for what promises to be an epic championship in 2019. SPIN South West will once again be able to provide our listeners with front row seats for all the matches in Munster, our audience will get live updates on air and follow all the action on our social channels. Led by Valerie Wheeler, our coverage will be top class, insights and offers yet another reason to tune in to SPIN South West”.

Also speaking at the launch, Valerie Wheeler, Sports Reporter and Fully Charged Presenter at SPIN South West also commented: “I’m extremely proud to announce that, for the third season in a row, SPIN South West are the Official Media Partner of Munster GAA. With continued access to this exclusive content, our Big Ball, Small Ball podcast, which is released every Monday covering all the updates you need on GAA during the season, will continue to grow from strength to strength”.
