Laois GAA has announced that their partnership with People First Credit Union is set to continue.
The Credit Union is sponsoring the Laois GAA Talent Academy programme which caters for players from U-13 up to and including U-16 in both hurling and football.
This is the platform for both player and coach development with over 350 players and 20 coaches involved in the process.
The detailed and carefully planned programme will enable all players to develop as well as giving a large amount of players the pathway and tools to progress onto adult level at both club and inter-county level.
This renewed partnership will enable the program to go from strength to strength as well as giving a new focus to providing top quality standards across the board on a continuous basis.
Laois GAA Chairperson Gerry Kavanagh thanked People First Credit Union at the official launch in O’Moore Park last weekend.
He said: “It’s great to have the work of our coaches and players recognised by People First Credit Union.
“They are a high profile and local business and their sponsorship will ensure we are able to provide players and coaches an even greater opportunity in providing the best standards right across the board.”
Speaking at the launch, Carol Dempsey of People First Credit Union said: “We are delighted to help in looking after the future footballers and hurlers within the county.
“We have a proud association with Laois GAA over the past year and want to see it continue to thrive in the future, after all this is where it begins.
“We pride ourselves in being forward thinking as a business as well as customer focused.
“The same qualities are evident within the games development program for academies and it’s great to be now associated with them.”
