08 Apr 2005 07:32

The Irish Hockey Association today unveiled Howard Holdings as a new sponsor of Irish hockey. The leading Irish property development firm, with over €700m worth of property under development, was voted Business of the Year in Cork last year. 

The IHA made the announcement in Cork today as part of a regional launch of Irish hockey’s new branding and ambitious plans. The Association also announced the hosting of the All-Ireland Club Championships in Cork between 30 April - 2 May this year, at Garryduff  Sports Centre’s new hockey facility. This is the first time the event has been held outside of Dublin. 

As part of its sponsorship, Howard Holdings will be the title sponsor for this year’s event. 

“We are delighted to welcome Howard Holdings as a sponsor of Irish hockey and are particularly pleased with the company’s decision to support the All-Ireland Club Championships in Cork,” IHA Chief Executive, Paul Varian said. 

“These are exciting times for Irish hockey. We have developed a new branding and unveiled ambitious plans for the future of our sport. With Howard Holdings’ involvement, we now look forward to an exciting Club Championships at the end of the month.” 

“We feel that hockey is on a rising tide and we are delighted to have the opportunity to be associated with it at such an important time in the sports development. We hope to be able to help in delivering the goals of excellence the sport has set out for itself,” Frank Gormley, Chairman of Howard Holdings said.
