Getting To Know The Players – Dublin Hurlers

The Summer of GAA is really kicking into gear, with all 4 codes really shaping up to have thrills and spills as the games roll by. At Intersport Elverys, we’re part of the fabric of GAA in every county. Through our support at club level, our retail partnerships and our county sponsorship’s, we share the passions of fans and players alike. We cannot wait to see what 2019 brings.

2019 is the first year Intersport Elverys have been official retail partners of Dublin GAA, and we’ve put some questions to two of the Dublin Footballers Chris Crummey & Rian McBride to get to know them a bit better and give you an insight into a county players life.
