Longford timber processing firm Glennon Brothers has clinched a three year sponsorship to head up the all new Edinburgh-based Gaelic Football School League.
Under the terms of the agreement, Glennon Brothers will provide financial backing to allow for the purchasing of new kits and equipment to support the newly christened ‘Glennon Brothers School League’.
Given over half of its employees are located north of the English border, joint managing directors Mike and Pat Glennon, said they were keen to give something back to the wider community.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the Edinburgh school league for Gaelic Football,” said Mike Glennon at the sponsorship launch evening inside Edinburgh’s Irish Consulate. “We all know that involvement in sport is enormously positive for young people. Without the time, commitment, and patience of countless volunteers, and the team at Dunedin Og, many young people would miss out on the wonderful opportunities that sport can provide, and we are delighted that we can support this venture and give back to the Scottish community which is so important to the success of our business.”
Other invited guests included Minister of State John Perry and Consul General of Ireland to Scotland, Susan Conlon.
