Galway star hurler Joe Canning, Galway senior footballer Michael Meehan, and Brian Tuohy of the Connacht Rugby Squad settled into the world cup lounge on the ground floor at the Eyre Square Centre recently to take in the best of the football action.
The sporting trio sampled the atmosphere during the opening match last week and were suitably impressed with the comfortable surroundings. The newly designed Eyre Square Centre is providing free seating areas and state of the art plasma screens so that supporters can observe the thrills and spills of the month long footballing extravaganza.
The Eyre Square Centre has organised a charity prize draw which will take place alongside the World Cup final, the proceeds of which will go directly to GOAL.
Prizes on offer as part of the World Cup Lounge Prize Draw include a Plasma Screen from PC World, a €250 Eyre Square Centre Gift Card, a reserved VIP table with complimentary finger food in Fagans Bar, a €100 gift voucher from Champion Sports and much more. Galway United Players will also be on hand to demonstrate their football skills on selected dates at the World Cup Lounge during the World Cup Competition.
Operations manager of the Eyre Square Centre, Stephen Hughes, says:"Eyre Square Centre is thrilled to be able to offer comfort to everybody who wishes to join us when watching selected World Cup matches. People can now be part of the action right in the heart of the city. The Eyre Square Centre is delighted to support GOAL throughout this exciting event.”
