Ladies Gaelic Football Announce Major Sponsorship

Vhi Healthcare to sponsor All-Ireland Club

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association today announced
that Vhi Healthcare will sponsor the All-Ireland Club Championships
for an initial period of two years at junior, intermediate and senior
levels. 2006 is the 30th anniversary of the competition and the
Vhi Healthcare All-Ireland Club finals will take place in late November.

The partnership with Vhi Healthcare is a major boost to Ladies
Gaelic Football, which last week saw over 25,600 attend the All-Ireland
finals in Croke Park while 230,000 people watched the games live
on TG4. There are now over 100,000 playing members in over 1,000
clubs across Ireland and overseas and this year will also see the
inaugural women’s International Rules series taking place.

It was also announced that Vhi Healthcare will partner with the
Ladies Gaelic Football Association to host a series of health seminars
in clubs throughout Ireland in 2007 with a view to provide lifestyle
and health advice to sportswomen nationwide.

Ms Geraldine Giles, President of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association
said: “We seek sponsorship partners in Ladies Football that
will work with us to promote our games. Ladies Football has never
been so popular or played by so many people all over the country.

Vhi Healthcare is an ideal partner for us and we look forward to
a mutually beneficial relationship over the coming years. Club football
is the cornerstone of our organisation as it permeates into towns
and villages across Ireland and this sponsorship enables us to promote
this competition at grassroots level.”

Vincent Sheridan, Chief Executive, Vhi Healthcare stated that,
“Vhi Healthcare is proud to sponsor the prestigious All-Ireland
Club Championships and to be working with the Ladies Gaelic Football
Association to promote female participation in sport at all levels.
We are committed to the nation-wide promotion of healthy living
at community level and we look forward to working with the association
to promote healthy living throughout Clubs in Ireland.”
