Team Ireland partner Flogas, today revealed ‘Energy Behind the Athletes’, a new campaign designed to amplify support for Team Ireland athletes while spotlighting the vital role of community support.

This coincides with the launch of an engaging docuseries on March 14th, offering an intimate look into Team Ireland, the clubs and communities that inspire them, through the lives of renowned athletes Ciara Mageean and Jordan Conroy.

Integral to the ‘Energy Behind the Athletes’ campaign is Flogas’ enduring support for grassroots sports and community initiatives, reflecting its commitment to fostering local talent and camaraderie.

Through what promises to be a captivating Docuseries with Irish Olympian David Gillick, viewers will be immersed in the inspiring journeys of Ciara Mageean and Jordan Conroy, delving into their upbringing and the communities that shaped them.

“In 2020, Team Ireland was represented by 116 athletes from 72 clubs and communities rights across the country,” said Flogas Managing Director John Rooney.

“In 2024 that representation will increase and that’s what makes Team Ireland so unique, it represents us all.”

“That’s why we were inspired to come on board with Team Ireland and through David, Ciara and Jordan, we’re looking to shine a light on the inspiring journeys of Team Ireland, their families and communities. It’s what we pride ourselves on in Flogas, working with and being part of communities all over Ireland.”

“I owe so much to the incredible people who’ve supported me every step of the way, from my wider community in Portaferry, to my family and friends,” said Mageean at a launch event in Dublin’s CHQ yesterday.

“Their unwavering belief and sacrifices have been the driving force behind my journey to the world stage in athletics.”

“As a Flogas ambassador, I couldn’t be prouder to be part of the ‘Energy Behind the Athletes’ campaign. It’s not just about me; it’s about shining a light on the amazing people behind the scenes that make our dreams as athletes possible.”

“Brands have a real opportunity to make a difference by joining athletes on a path to success, and recognising the role a community plays in our lives.”

“Returning to the Olympics is an honour and I couldn’t have made it here without the incredible support from my team, my family and my friends,” added Irish rugby 7’s star Jordan Conroy.

“It’s heartening to see brands like Flogas stepping up to champion athletes like myself and shine a light on the extraordinary people who’ve been there since day one.”

“The docuseries was a lot of fun. It’s a platform for people throughout my life to share their stories and the pivotal roles they’ve played in my journey. It’s humbling and inspiring to see their stories told.”

“Every athlete training toward Paris shares similar goals and ambitions,” said Team Ireland Chef de Mission for Paris 2024, Gavin Noble.

“Each of them proudly represents not only Team Ireland but also their community, family, and friends. They serve as inspirations to others.”

“I have no doubt that both Ciara and Jordan will shine this summer, and it is fitting that their stories are told and amplified nationwide through the support of partners Flogas. In Paris, we also celebrate our Centenary, and there are few better Olympic ambassadors than David Gillick, whose energy can bring the Olympic spirit to life in the communities and groups he will visit.”
