Kearys Motor Group has announced a new three-year sponsorship deal with Cork Camogie, making it one of the largest sponsorships in the sport.

The brand will adorn a new Cork Camogie jersey and will support the Cork Camogie Senior, Intermediate, Minor and U16 camogie teams for the next three years as well as getting involved with both Under 16 and Under 14 Club Championships.

Kearys Motor Group is Ireland’s largest family-owned motor group, representing BMW, Mini, Motorrad, Hyundai, Renault and Nissan franchises across ten dealerships in Cork as well as Kearys Carstore used car supermarkets in Dublin and Cork, and We Buy Cars, a national car buying business.

The business currently employs over 400 people in Cork and Dublin. It takes over the sponsorship of Cork Camogie from Blackbee, an investment firm based in Cork that withdrew 12 months early from its three-year partnerhip.

The deal comes one month after Galway Camogie signed a six-figure partnership with Westerwood Global and is another major positive for the sport.

“We are delighted and proud to partner Cork Camogie for the next three years with this significant sponsorship that reflects Kearys’ culture, values and team spirit,” said CEO of Kearys Motor Group, Brendan Keary.

“We look forward to a great relationship with all the teams and promoting camogie in our community in Cork and women’s sport in general throughout the county>”

“The Cork Camogie teams are an amazing group of athletes and fantastic ambassadors for Cork as we have a great talent pool and determination to succeed. We look forward to working with Kearys Motor Group and forging a successful relationship together over the next three years,” added Mairead Donovan, Cathaoirleach, Cork Camogie.

Since 2000 the team have competed in 16 All Ireland finals, winning nine. Davy Fitgerald is part of the management group for the current season.
