LIMERICK GAA has confirmed that Mr Binman is the new title sponsor of the Limerick county Bord na nOg.

Mr Binman will be the title sponsor for all underage hurling and football championships for 2019.

Mr Binman will be sponsoring all the U-13 to U-16 levels in both hurling and football for 2019. These competitions cover every corner of Limerick and culminate in over 120 semi finals and 60 finals across the different competitions.

“We are delighted to welcome Mr Binman on board as the title sponsor of the Bord na nOg underage competitions. Mr Binman have been great supporters of Limerick GAA for a numbers of years now and we look forward to making this a successful partnership to benefit the young sportspeople who compete in these competitions," said Pat Davoren, Chairman of Limerick GAA Bord Na nOg.

Joe Cleary, Sales and Marketing Director of Mr Binman, commented: “We have been proud partners with Limerick GAA for many years now but we like to be involved in the heart of the community in which we operate and the heart of the Gaelic Games community is surely in the hurlers and footballers of the future. We hope that our involvement can help the underage structures and competitions in Limerick go from strength to strength over the coming years.”

Every year over 12,000 children take part in the underage competitions run by Limerick GAA Bord na nOg and the season is ready to commence now for 2019.

Mr Binman, which employs over 130 people in the region, services over 37,000 household customers and 3,500 commercial clients in Ireland.
