EirGrid, the state-owned company that manages and operates Ireland’s national grid, this year launched the ‘EirGrid Moments in Time’ campaign as part of its timing partnership with the GAA.
The campaign encouraged GAA fans to share their favourite GAA ‘Moments in Time’ on Facebook or Instagram using the #EirGridGAA and tagging their GAA club.
Be it an image captured of a fan watching their county lift the Sam Maguire or Liam MacCarthy cup for the first time, or having the pre-match chats over breakfast, EirGrid saw it all and want to thank everyone for their fantastic entries.
In the case of Westmeath, a photograph nominated by Lough Lene Gaels Hurling Club is in the running for the Leinster category: a shot of clubman Tommy Doyle comforting Meath’s Damian Healy after Westmeath’s Leinster SHC round three win over the Royals at TEG Cusack Park in May. The moment was captured by photographer Piaras Ó Mídheach of Sportsfile.
This competition came to close on September 18 after Dublin claimed the All-Ireland final title for the third time in a row and a shortlist of 12 entries, three from each province have been selected.
To vote for Lough Lene Gaels to win an EirGrid digital clock and scoreboard for their club, go onto https://www.facebook.com/eirgrid/ and cast your vote by liking their entry.
One club from each province will be selected at midday on Monday October 16.
