The talent that is coming through the ranks in Laois is undeniable with strong clubs like Mountmellick Sarsfields and All Ireland School’s Champions; Scoil Chríost Rí and that future will now be all the stronger thanks to their association with a forward looking partner like the rapidly growing OpenApp.

Laois, who got their TG4 Leinster Championship campaign underway last weekend, will be hoping for a long campaign this summer as they rebuild for an assault on the Leinster and All Ireland Championship titles.

The benefits of this partnership extend far beyond the pitch as players will also benefit from exciting scholarship opportunities along with internships with huge benefits also being available for the Laois County board in this revolutionary sponsorship agreement.

“The timing of the agreement with OpenApp is perfect as we enter a rebuilding stage for our senior team and plans to develop clubs and county football within Laois.” Phill O’Keeffe (Chairperson for Laois) said “The agreement also importantly helps the players develop their professional careers outside football with bursary funds and internship opportunities with OpenApp. I look forward to working closely with OpenApp in the coming years”

“OpenApp are delighted that the Laois LGFA accepted our offer to get involved and we hope in some small way to help them to achieve their goals over the next few years.” said Mel McIntyre, Managing Director of OpenApp. “Many of our staff are very supportive and committed to the goals and ethos of Gaelic Games and we feel that this relationship is a perfect complement to our activities in developing information systems to monitor and improve healthcare delivery. In particular we see the growth of Ladies Gaelic Football as a most positive development and we congratulate Laois LGFA for their promotion of the games and all the benefits that come from that.”

The sponsorship agreement covers kit supply, the annual sponsorship of a college bursary fund for members of Laois LGFA, annual sponsorship of player of the match awards for club county finals, internships and career mentoring opportunities with OpenApp and providing a website solution to help promote Laois LGFA, automate club fixtures, the opportunity to sell sponsorship and in general streamline the administration duties required from volunteer county board officers.
