The Ultimate GAA Season Soundtrack

If you’re up for the match, you’re up for our GAA-inspired driving playlist.

IT’S HIGH SUMMER and high drama in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling and Football Championships.

So what tunes get the fans whirring on the road to The Match?

We’re inspired by this awesome collaboration from Goats Don’t Shave (featured in another guise in our playlist below):
