Swords Express is delighted to mark International Women’s Day by announcing our sponsorship of Fingallians Senior Ladies GAA team for the second year running. We are proud of the contribution that Fingallians club and players make to the Swords community and are delighted to show our support for the Fingallians Senior Ladies GAA team again this year.
Both Swords Express and Fingallians are well established in Swords and share the values of family and community. Swords Express, a division of Eirebus, is a third-generation family owned business, headed up by Jeff Clarke, Operations Director and Sinead Kavanagh, Managing Director whose family established Eirebus in 1971. Fingallians is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland having been founded in 1884 and many local families have trained on their grounds. Both have a long history contributing to the local area and share a common goal to keep people moving whether it be through transport or sport!
Paul Webster (Sponsorship Commitee): " Swords Express is a very strong brand, and also a fantastic transport service used by many of our members. It's great to have them supporting our Ladies Football team"
It is hoped that this partnership will continue to increase the profile of Fingallians Senior Ladies GAA team at a crucial time when women’s sports show signs of growth and momentum. Last year, the women's 2019 All-Ireland finals day recorded the highest attendance to date of 56,114 spectators, an increase of 6,000 on the previous year. Campaigns such as 20x20 and Show Your Stripes, are driving women’s sport to the fore. As a female led company, Swords Express has a natural affinity with women’s sports and identified this as an great opportunity to support this important movement within the Swords community.
Sinead Kavanagh (Managing Director Eirebus) commented “We are delighted to support the Fingallians Ladies Football Team for a second year and to help increase visibility of females in sport as part of the 20x20 movement. We’re looking forward to a great year ahead and wish the ladies every success”.
This launch precedes a busy period of match fixtures that will be confirmed soon and we look forward to playing an active role in supporting the ladies again this season – on and off the pitch! #DrivingLocalSupport
