WEEE Ireland has signed a five-year sponsorship deal with Dublin-based Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA clubs), Kilmacud Crokes.
The recycling organisation will also sponsor the Mini All Ireland event, a south Dublin GAA tournament for youth teams. Approximately 200 teams will take part in the three week tournament.
Speaking at the announcement of the sponsorship, Bo Browne of WEEE Ireland said, “We are delighted to support our friends and neighbours Kilmacud Crokes through this sponsorship. WEEE Ireland holds free recycling events at community locations across the country every week ensuring WEEE and waste batteries are going through authorised recycling systems and not ending up in landfill or general scrap metal processing.
“The scheme organises these with community groups and local associations so this sponsorship feels like a natural fit for us. We hope to have all the Kilmacud Crokes teams spreading the winning recycling message both on and off the field in the years to come.”
Kilmacud Crokes has had several players on both the Dublin Senior football and hurling squads, including current stars Cian O' Sullivan, Paul Mannion, Kevin Nolan, Rory O' Carroll, Seán McGrath, Jack Dugan, Ryan O' Dwyer, Ross O' Carroll and Niall Corcoran.
