Mayo GAA & Elverys Lauch Schools Initiative
- Jul 24,2019
Mayo GAA are delighted to partner with Intersport Elverys to offer free equipment to secondary schools in Mayo for the next 5 years. As part of this initiative all secondary schools both Boys & Girls who participate in GAA competitions within Mayo are eligible for this scheme. This means all of the eligible schools will receive €500 towards the purchase of equipment for their school.
Statement by Mike Connolly, Cathaoirleach, Coiste Chontae Mhaigh Eo: Intersports Elverys have been sponsoring Mayo teams for the past 25 years and I am delighted that they are now also going to be working with schools within Mayo for the next 5 years. Without the great work done at schools level we would not have players involved with our clubs who in turn go on to pull on the Green & Red jersey. This equipment will greatly enhance GAA activity within the schools and I want to thank Elverys for the continued sponsorship they give to Mayo GAA at all levels of our games.
Statement by Patrick Rowland, CEO Intersport Elverys: We are delighted to continue to partner with Mayo GAA into the future and believe that schools play a huge part in nurturing and developing future Mayo players. We have been sponsoring Mayo teams for over 25 years and firmly believe that this initiative will further develop the promotion of GAA games at school level across the county.
