SuperValu linked up with Cork Ladies Gaelic Footballers Valerie Mulcahy, Brid Stack, Geraldine O’Flynn, Orla Finn and Briege Corkery to celebrate the first year of their sponsorship partnership ahead of their crucial All Ireland Quarter Final against Mayo this Saturday, August 16th.
As well as becoming the team’s official jersey sponsor, the partnership will also see the retailer selling Cork LGFA jerseys in store as well as developing a new look website with the County Board.
SuperValu’s Managing Director, Martin Kelleher said; “We are delighted to continue our strong relationship with Gaelic games through our three year sponsorship of the Cork Ladies Gaelic Football team. As the leading Irish retailer, we are focused on helping the Cork Ladies’ Football community share their passion for the game and we look forward to working with them to support this fantastic group of athletes. We hope to drive passion and energy behind them in their quest to continue their unprecedented success.” Kelleher added.
Welcoming the announcement, Valerie Mulcahy, player for the Senior Cork Ladies Football team said; “SuperValu are an outstanding sponsor of the All-Ireland GAA Football Championship, so we are thrilled that they have decided to come on board with the Cork Ladies football team as well. Together we can continue to promote ladies’ football and encourage even more Cork fans to support the team.”
Crowned the Munster LGFA Senior Champions over Kerry in July, Cork ladies will be looking to continue their success story. With some tough competition this year in the All-Ireland Senior Championship and after last year’s success, the Cork ladies know that it is all to play for and they will be trying their hardest to hold on to their title again this year.
