JLT Ireland has been unveiled as the headline sponsor for the 2017 Gymnastics Ireland National Awards on Saturday 18th November.
The news follows on the back of the recent achievement of two Team Ireland gymnasts claiming gold, silver, and bronze in the Apparatus Finals at the 2017 Northern European Championships in the Faroe Islands.
It has been a great year for the sport with membership up 8,000 year on year to a new high of 25,000 and research revealing that the sport was now the third most popular for children across the country as chosen by parents.
7,000 gymnasts took part in the Gymnastics Ireland National Events Programme and with Rhys McClenaghan claiming Gold on the World Cup Circuit in Croatia there will be plenty to celebrate.
“It’s great that JLT Ireland has again partnered with us as the headline sponsor for the 2017 National Awards,” said Gymnastics Ireland CEO Ciaran Gallagher.
“Our inaugural event last year was a huge success and this year’s promises to be the same as we celebrate another great year for our sport in Ireland.”
“I would like to thank Amanda Harton and her team at JLT Ireland for partnering with us and investing in a night that celebrates the achievements of our members.”
“JLT Ireland and Gymnastics Ireland share a huge passion for sport and we are proud to partner with them once again,” added Harton.
“We wish Gymnastics Ireland the very best in their continuous growth and development of this great sport which is like no other and one of the most popular sports in Ireland.”
The JLT Gymnastics Ireland 2017 National Awards takes place at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Golden Lane in Dublin on the 18th November 2017. Over 200 Gymnastics Ireland members from across Ireland will attend, with some also traveling from the UK and beyond.
