2020 Dublin GAA Season Press Release

AIG Insurance celebrate the start of the 2020 Dublin GAA Season with tribute to clubs, volunteer members and frontline workers.



Dublin footballer Dean Rock, hurler Danny Sutcliffe, ladies’ footballer Leah Caffrey and camogie player Eimear McCarthy were in Parnell Park today to launch the 2020 Intercounty season and also pay tribute to the wonderful Dublin GAA club membership who have been such a key pillar within their communities during the COVID 19 pandemic.


AIG has also launched a new series as part of AIG ‘Dub Club Chronicles’ production called ‘Lockdown Lives’ that shines a light on a range of clubs across Dublin city and county that helps tell the story of grassroot club players and members during the pandemic some of which also serve on various frontlines both in the medical and other professions.


The series looks at the clubs and its challenges, its people, the community spirit, the acts of kindness, the hope and the future. As part of today’s launch a new short film is being released as part of the series focusing on Dublin’s smallest GAA club, Wild Geese GAA, based out in Oldtown, County Dublin and founded back in 1888 so one of Dublin’s and the country’s oldest clubs. While they might be a small club, they have a big heart and have always played an important role in their local rural community which has been especially the case over the past 6 months when the crises hit and community became even more important.

Speaking at the launch today, Aidan Connaughton, Head of Personal Lines Insurance at AIG Ireland, commented:


“With the year we have had in sport with postponements and delays, big games will be of huge interest more than ever before so 2020 could be the most exciting year ever for the GAA season.  As the very proud sponsors of Dublin GAA, AIG wishes all the Dublin teams and management the best for 2020.  We also want to use this opportunity to thank Dublin GAA and all the clubs, players and members who have played such an important role of support in their communities during the pandemic. As part of our ‘Lockdown Lives’ short film series we are proud to be telling and sharing the wonderful positive stories of community, support and hope during a challenging and worrying time for everyone. We hope you enjoy the next episode in this series.


Thanks to Leah, Eimear, Dean and Danny for being here today, and we wish them, their teammates, management, along with Dublin GAA clubs all the best for 2020!“
