Camogie Association signs two year deal with the Irish Daily Star
The Camogie Association has announced that the Irish Daily Star will sponsor the National Camogie Leagues in a two year deal.
The news was announced this afternoon at a photo call to mark the beginning of this year’s National League. Twenty three counties will play in four divisions with finals taking place in April.
Speaking about the announcement Camogie President Joan O’Flynn:
“”We are delighted that the Irish Daily Star has come on board as the title sponsor for this major competition. It marks a further boost for the Association and we are looking forward to raising our profile even further with the Irish Daily Star.
The Camogie National Leagues are our second major competition and adding a title sponsor adds to their stature even further. The commitment of the Irish Daily Star to this series is a massive boost to the organisation and further endorses the strong role of female sport, specifically camogie in Irish society.
We look forward to working with the Irish Daily Star as our chief sponsor to further enhance the profile of our game and association, and so too all other forms of media over the next two years and further.””
Paul Cooke, Managing Director of the Irish Daily Star said:
“”We at the Irish Daily Star are committed to providing the very best coverage of sport at all levels in Ireland to our 410,000 readers. We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Camogie Association over the years and we are honoured to be the title sponsor of the Irish Daily Star Camogie Leagues for the next two years.””
The 2011 Irish Daily Star Camogie Leagues throw in on Sunday February 13th with a mouth watering Division One clash between Galway and Wexford – a repeat of the 2010 All Ireland Camogie Final.
