Help For What Matters Heading South

Our Help for What Matters Rugby Club Roadshow with Ulster Bank Heads South this week where we will be at Young Munster RFC in Limerick tonight and Cork Con FC in Cork on Tuesday to speak to clubs from across the Munster region.

Dublin will round out the 2018 Roadshow tour for clubs across Leinster on Thursday night at Lansdowne FC.

Each session, hosted at an Ulster Bank All Ireland League Club covers areas that really matter to clubs from sponsorship and fundraising to applying for grants, managing finances and building relationships within their local area.

Dennis O’Connor and Amy Power from 2Into3 will deliver two elements of the session on Grant application and fundraising, alongside Sandra O’Rourke from Ulster Bank. Rob Hartnett from Sport for Business will talk about how to attract local sponsorship and build connections with the local community.

Ulster Bank Ambassador and TV3 and Sky Sports Analyst Alan Quinlan will be dropping by to all three of this week’s events as well to talk about the Grand Slam, Champions’ Cup and more.

The first events took place last week at Belfast Harlequins and Galway Corinthians and drew a great response from the clubs present.

Attendance at the roadshow events is free but registration is required for each. In order to register for the event of your choice, please visit

“As proud sponsors of the Ulster Bank League, we are delighted to support events that bring clubs together and that’s exactly what the ‘Help for What Matters’ Rugby Club Roadshow does,” said Ulster Bank Head of Business Marketing and Sponsorship, Carol McMahon.

“It provides an opportunity for clubs to discuss the challenges and opportunities they face around sponsorship and financial planning, and it’s also a chance for collaborative learning and support.”
