So you think you're a GAA Pundit?
Have you ever listened to match analysis and though 'I could do better than that', now's you're chance! Throughout the summer, we're talking GAA Football on the eirGAA Boast channel. If you think you can out-talk experts like eir GAA ambassadors Tomás Ó Sé, Brendan Devenney, Ciarán Whelan and David Brady, download the app and have your say.
We'll be selecting from the best comments over the season and offering one amateur pundit the chance to attend the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Final and participate in our webcast review programme.
What Is Boast?
Boast is an audio social network. So imagine Twitter or Facebook, except you can actually talk to the other people. For 20 seconds at a time. Long enough to have a chat but not long enough for someone to bore you!
First, you need to download the Boast app to your phone or tablet and register an account. It's available for iOS and Android;
Once set up, you need to join the eirGAA group on Boast;
Once logged in, touch on the Boast logo upper left and select groups. If the eirGAA group is listed, touch on it. Otherwise, touch the 'find' icon (upper right) and enter eirGAA in the search field.
When you've found the group, touch on 'Join' to make sure you stay up-to-date with all the activity.
Go ahead and touch on any of the 'Boasts' to have a listen to the various discussions. Touch on the arrow to the right of any Boast title to dive deeper to listen to brag responses or add your own.
To add your response, touch on the Boast icon at the bottom of the screen. You can record up to 20 seconds. Don't worry if you don't get it right first time, you can re-record until you're happy.
That's about it. Join the conversation and remember, we're giving away All-Ireland Final tickets to the best Boaster of the season and will be inviting them to participate in our webcast discussion around the Final.
Don't forget to follow our GAA ambassadors on boast as well. Ciarán Whelan, David Brady, Tomás Ó Sé and Brendan Devenney will all be boasting throughout the season offering their expert insights.
If you don't have the Boast App, you can still have a listen to the conversation.
