Over the past few weeks we have been working on a New Trophy Design for the Croke Park Classic on August 30th. The new Design will be named the Dan Rooney Perpetual Trophy after Americas Irish Ambassador, who has a huge interest in Football and the Gaelic Games. It will be a Biennial event competed for by leading US College Football Teams. This year the University of Central Florida and Pennsylvania State will battle for the trophy. Holland is delighted to be asked to design this prestigious piece which will incorporate Pittsburgh Steel and Native Irish Yew themed on the cage of an American footballers Helmet and the roof of Croke Park.
