Earlier this week we held our Summer Splash to celebrate our sponsorships across Dublin GAA, Tennis Ireland, New Zealand Rugby, the Golfing Union of Ireland and Irish Ladies Golf Union.
The event was led by host Des Cahill and thankfully the sun shone through the clouds for a fantastic day of sporting fun which can be viewed below.
We had Dublin GAA stars, Bernard Brogan, Johnny McCaffrey, Cian Boland, Sinéad Goldrick and Ali Twomey were joined by former Munster and New Zealand All Black legend Doug Howlett, Irish amateur golfing twins, Leona and Lisa Maguire, and Irish tennis player Jenny Claffey, test their skills in the AIG Insurance Summer Splash event, a specially designed skills competition that allowed the stars to show off their skills in a range of different sports.
"The AIG Insurance Summer Splash was a very enjoyable and successful event that gave AIG an opportunity to showcase its important sponsorships and relationships in a fun and engaging way while giving the fans and public an opportunity to be part of the fun and meet their sporting heroes."
To give our contestants a fair chance, we split them into 3 teams with players from each sport split evenly among them - Team A (Bernard Brogan, Ali Twomey, Lisa Maguire), Team I (Johnny McCaffrey, Sinead Goldrick, Jenny Claffey) and Team G (Leona Maguire, Doug Howlett, Cian Boland). They then proceeded to test their aim at moving targets positioned 20, 40 and 60 meters away by football, hurling, golf, tennis and rugby.
"It was great to play with all the great sport stars here in Ireland, we had a lot of fun"
Team G took home 1st place impressing in round 3 and just, edging ahead of 2nd place Team A in round 4, leaving Team I to lick their wounds in last place. The overall top-scorer and the only star to score consistently on the day, was Lisa Maguire, who happily accepted her AIG Summer Splash trophy.
