Hurler of the year Henry Shefflin and Dublin 2011 footballer of the year Alan Brogan are both looking for All-Ireland glory in 2013.
Speaking at the announcement that Electric Ireland will be the official energy partner of the GAA for the next five years, the two inter-county veterans allayed any fears that they are considering retirement in the off-season.
Shefflin will be looking to continue his phenomenal form having collected a ninth Celtic Cross this year as well as an 11th All-Star. For Brogan, Championship 2013 will present an opportunity to make up for the disappointment of this year when injury restricted his efforts to help Dublin defend the Sam Maguire and the three-time All-Star will hope to be a key figure under new Blues’ boss Jim Gavin.
The new partnership between Electric Ireland and the GAA will result in a series of new initiatives designed to promote energy efficiency across GAA clubs over the coming years. It is an extension of the Cúl Green initiative with Croke Park which resulted in the stadium becoming more energy efficient.
