The news that RSM Farrell Grant Sparks will sponsor the Longford GAA Race Day for the second year running is a major boost to the flagship event, according to chief organiser Martin Skelly.

“This Race Day is so important to the people of Longford and the surrounding counties, so we appreciate their support,” said GAA Leinster Council Chairman, Martin Skelly.

“Their support is particularly special to us as they are an international firm with a local presence, who support local employment.”

Michael Keenan, a partner in the local office of RSM Farrell Grant Sparks, expressed his happiness over the sponsorship deal: “We admire the commitment and dedication of so many dedicated volunteers which makes the GAA such a success. This commitment is in evidence in Longford GAA throughout the year at all levels of the organisation and we are delighted to play a small role in supporting this work.”

The Longford GAA Race Day has taken place for over 10 years and is now recognised as one of the largest corporate race days in Ireland. It draws over 1,000 people annually. This year’s event will take place at the Punchestown National Hunt Festival on April 24.
