Ladies Gaelic Football stars launch Sona's nationwide GAA club competition
€15,000 prize fund available to clubs nationwide
Sona, Ireland’s leading provider of vitamins and nutritional supplements, is delighted to announce that it is supporting ladies Gaelic football for a second year running through a nationwide competition. They have a prize fund of €15,000 to offer three clubs across the country, one club per province. Sona has partnered with several Gaelic Football legends including Cork footballer Valerie Mulcahy, Mayo player Fiona McHale and Dublin captain Sinead Aherne to support women in Irish sport.
With a presence in pharmacies in every county across the Republic of Ireland, Sona has a significant footprint in local communities nationwide. As a long-established Irish company at the heart of communities across the country, Sona understands the vital role that ladies Gaelic football plays in providing women with the opportunity to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Through supporting clubs with funding Sona continues to actively support optimizing health and fitness in Irish sport.
Sona is asking for people to go to their local pharmacy, purchase a Sona product with a unique competition code and log on to the Sona website to nominate their local club to be in with a chance of winning €5,000.
Along with the competition, Sona is embarking on a nationwide media campaign across the summer which will support the competition and ladies gaelic football. Media partnerships will include Sona advertising spots on several radio stations and a large scale digital partnership over the next three months.
Newly appointed Sona Brand Ambassador and captain of the Dublin team Sinead Aherne joined Sona today to officially launch the competition in Croke Park. Sinead and the Dublin ladies team are preparing for a busy season ahead as Dublin defends its winning title.
Sinead Aherne, Dublin Ladies Gaelic Football captain, added: ‘I’m delighted to be at Drury Buildings today to announce Sona’s support of ladies Gaelic football. Brands like Sona acknowledging ladies football as a fundamental game in Irish communities really help in promoting the sport. We urge people across the country to enter the Sona competition on support of their local clubs. The prize will go a long way in helping future generations of players achieve their best in the game.’
Speaking about the sponsorship, Ohan Yergainharsian, Sona MD said: “We are very proud to announce that Sona is continuing to support ladies GAA football this year through our nationwide competition. Last year we were delighted to sponsor TG4 coverage of the ladies’ gaelic game and give away thousands to clubs around the country. This year our in-store competition will deliver further support to clubs and in turn local communities.
At Sona we have over 34 years’ experience in producing vitamins and nutritional supplements here in Ireland and we know the importance of people to caring for their health with a more balanced, healthy lifestyle. At Sona, we prioritize optimizing your health, now and for the future.”
