Having sealed its place in the county football final for the second year in a row, Tullamore Senior Ladies Football team has secured new sponsorship from Ireland’s leading metals and electronics recycling company, KMK Metals Recycling, which has its headquarters in the town’s Cappincur Industrial Estate.
New jerseys bearing the company’s logo will be worn for the first time at the county final, which will be held on Saturday, September 19th, at Tubber GAA grounds at 1pm. Tullamore will take on Naomh Ciarain in a repeat of last year’s final, where they were defeated. The victors subsequently went on to be crowned Offaly, Leinster and All- Ireland club champions for 2019.
On their journey to the final, Tullamore defeated Edenderry in the semi-final, and also convincingly saw off challenges from Rhode, Naomh Molaise and Edenderry in the early rounds.
Nora Kavanagh, Chairperson of Tullamore Senior Ladies Football team, said: “In a year when many sports clubs have struggled to find the necessary funds to keep clubs and teams together, we are delighted to announce that KMK Metals Recycling has come on board as a sponsor of the club. This new partnership recognises the importance of commitment to the local community, which both KMK Metals Recycling and Tullamore Ladies Football promote as one of their core values. We are indebted to KMK Metals Recycling for this generous offer and applaud their policy of supporting local organisations.”
Max Kyck, General Manager of KMK Metals Recycling, commented: “Supporting local teams and organisations is a big part of our corporate social responsibility programme and sponsoring Tullamore Ladies Football team was an easy decision. This strong Tullamore team has worked hard and deserves a place in the county final. Everyone at KMK Metals Recycling will be rooting for them on Saturday.”
