An innovative new sports panel event which brings together Former International Rugby and GAA stars, and aptly entitled “An Evening of 2 Halves”, is coming to the Europa Hotel, Belfast on Thursday 13th February 2020.
The upcoming Six Nations championship and the 2020 Gaelic Football Season will be discussed on the night. The panellists will also look back on their own iconic careers and tell the inside story of what goes on behind the dressing room door!
The first half sees Ireland’s 2019 World Cup Captain Rory Best along with Stephen Ferris and Chris Henry making up a well informed pack. Darren Cave will act as master of ceremonies.
After the half time break for refreshments, the stellar line up appearing for the 2nd half includes GAA stars Kerry’s Tomas O’Se, Armagh’s Oisin McConville and Tyrone’s Peter Canavan. Media personality Frank Mitchell takes over the MC role. An extra time section will feature a mixed sports panel with one from each GAA and Rugby panel being joined by local ladies sports stars.
Tony McKeown, Director of Granite Marketing, who have developed the event commented “Panel shows with sports stars are always popular, however, we wanted to go the extra mile and create something that little bit different. Bringing world-class athletes together to reflect on their careers and give an invaluable insight into team sports in the modern era whilst maintaining a relaxed, fun and engaging environment was top of our priority list.”
The event, with Accident Management Specialists, CRASH Services and leading personal injury specialists, JMK Solicitors, as main sponsors ‘kicks off’ at 7pm with a drinks reception. This is followed by a meal before the show. When the ‘game’ is over, a charity raffle and silent auction will take place in aid of Co-Operation Ireland and Cancer Fund for Children.
If you have a passion for Rugby , GAA or both then don’t delay, the event has limited seating. To book a table of 10, platinum or premium options are available, please call Jessica or Colleen at Granite Marketing on 028 3044 2498 for details of the packages.
