Support your GAA County this summer with Iarnród Éireann

As the summer winds another All Ireland Football and Hurling Championship also comes to an end with all the County teams having fought hard campaigns to realise their dreams and compete for Sam Maguire and Liam Mccarthy at Croke Park this September.

In the All Ireland football mens Senior Championship no county was able to knock Dublin off their perch and take Sam Maguire back home. Dublin have now achieved the seemingly impossible and have been crowned champions in September for the third consecutive time.

The All Ireland Hurling Championship was staged for the 130th time this summer. Galway emerged victorious after a hard fought campaign this summer and are the team to beat in the Hurling Championship and will hope that they can defend the Liam McCarthy cup this season against their biggest rivals

While these campaigns are now in the history books the Ladies still have time to put their names alongside them with the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championship Finals still to be played.

Next summer old rivalries will be renewed and the battle to be crowned All Ireland champions begins once again. Travel with Iarnród Éireann to support your county as they begin the journey to Croke Park in September.
