In exciting news former Ireland rugby player Shane Byrne is to join Limor as a brand ambassador ahead of the 2017 British & Irish Lions tour to New Zealand, which starts this Saturday 3rd June.

Byrne, a well respected and popular rugby pundit will be using Limor's unique social audio recording and sharing abilities to document his time on tour, posting regular content focusing on rugby news and action as the tournament unfolds over the next 5 weeks.

With less than 3 days left to the opening match against the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians excitement is palpable amongst Lion fans after the four year wait. 

Known for his oratorical skills, Shane's vast rugby knowledge and experience as a Lion make him the perfect candidate for the Limor social audio platform. 

Limor users can expect plenty of behind the scenes content and rugby talk as he mingles with fellow rugby pundits, players past and present, and of course hardcore rugby fans who have travelled from all over the globe.

I’m really excited to be teaming up with Limor for the 2017 Lions tour to New Zealand, its amazing to think I can record something pitch side, publish it, and then share it with someone anywhere in the world...instantaneously ,and I just love the voice commenting feature, its very clever stuff!
