AIB and Dublin GAA will shortly begin rolling out a number of local and club based initiatives as part of a new community partnership.
Customers got a taste of how the two organisations might work together at a special event last night in Bankcentre looking forward to the All Ireland Football Championship in ten days time.
Through its 25 year association with the AIB All Ireland Club Championships the bank has a strong connection to the GAA club community and with almost one-quarter of branches being based in or around Dublin, a new twist to that connection makes a lot of sense.
Dublin midfielder James McCarthy works for AIB, as does Mayo Manager Stephen Rochford though it was down to players of an earlier vintage, and some with more small ball experience from the hurling camp that regaled the group gathered last night.
More details of the new partnership will be unveiled in the autumn, after Sunday week’s Final and as the club season swings into top gear.
AIB and Dublin GAA are among more than 220 organisations that play an active part of the Sport for Business community.
