ESB International have been sponsoring the S.A Gaels since 2014. To celebrate their participation in the World Games 2016, taking place in Dublin, on Monday 8th August, the Gaels made a visit to ESB
International’s Head Office in Stephens Court for a breakfast reception. The
event was a great success and staff got to meet the players and coaching staff
of the Gaels. From there, they went to the top of Grafton Street for a photo
shoot and also performed another of their traditional songs and dance. During
their performance they were also joined by the South African Ambassador in
Ireland, His Excellency Ahlangene Cyprian Sigcau, who was delighted to join in
the festivities, which drew quite the crowd.
The GAA World Games kicked off for the Gaels on Tuesday 9th August with
the first match kicking off against New York. The week was a great success with
both the men and women performing admirably. The women team lost in the final of the
plate, while the men’s team narrowly lost out to Oman in the final of the
shield, losing by a single point in extra time.
It is great for ESB International to be involved with the SA
Gaels, which has so many connections with many employees at ESB International.
It provides us with great coverage not only in Ireland, but South Africa also
where we have completed many projects over a number of years, and want to
continue our relationship within the region for many years to come.
