Irish Distillers Sponsorship
Once again Irish Distillers Ltd. demonstrated their support for Midleton GAA when, last Thursday, David Harper from Irish Distiller’s Ltd presented a sponsorship cheque to Mary Quinn treasurer of Midleton Juvenile GAA club to help promote Gaelic games in our area, Liam Ryan Club Chairman and John Fenton Treasurer also attended. Irish Distillers and Midleton GAA have a long tradition of co-operation with many members of the GAA club being current or former employees of the distillery. Indeed one of our members Kevin Mc Sweeney was instrumental in organising this presentation and we would like to thank Kevin especially for his work, not alone in the under age section of our club, but also for being the link between Midleton GAA and Irish Distillers. Midleton GAA is very conscious of its reputation around the country and of being ambassadors for our club and town and so the link between us continues to promote both entities in a good light. Irish Distillers continues to expand its operations and sales worldwide and this can only be good for all in the area.
