Sports Direct has today announced a three-year expansion of their grassroots GAA support programme to 2024, with a further five new clubs added to their portfolio, bringing their overall grassroots GAA support to 11 clubs nationwide.

For the past three years, as part of Cycle 1 of their grassroots programme, Sports Direct has sponsored six GAA clubs across Ireland including: Glen Rovers (Cork), Listry GAA (Kerry), Ballygunner GAA (Waterford), Clane GAA (Kildare), St Dominic’s GAA (Roscommon) and Bellaghy GAC (Derry). 

Sports Direct has invested more than €250,000 into their support at this level to date, and with the launch of Cycle 2 of the programme, they will not only continue their support of their Cycle 1 clubs, but have also added support for Blessington GAA (Wicklow), Cavan Gaels GAA (Cavan), Geraldine’s GFC (Louth), Rhode GAA (Offaly) and St. James’ GAA (Galway) into their grassroots fold.
