This is a very interesting development.
Laois GAA’s county grounds, O’Moore Park, will now be called MW Hire O’Moore Park as part of a brand new sponsorship agreement.
The change in the name was announced this evening by Laois GAA.
Chairperson of Laois GAA, Peter O’Neill is delighted to announce an extension to their partnership with MW Hire which has been in place for the past ten years, which has greatly benefited GAA players in Laois across both codes, age grades, including their very successful talent academies.
He said: “We are delighted that Matty Walsh MW Hire Group has agreed to extend his sponsorship to include the naming rights for O ‘Moore Park stadium.
“The stadium is now one of the leading stadiums in the country after Croke Park, both for high profile games and games which get live and deferred TV coverage by RTE, SKY, TG4 and Eir Sport.
“The stadium has a maximum capacity of 22,000, of which 6,500 are seated, floodlighting, to a standard for televised hurling games, now means the number of high profile games in the stadium has increased further.
“This alliance will help to enhance and develop facilities in MW Hire O ‘Moore Park into the future. Thanks to MW Hire Group’s sponsorship, we will be able to invest in the betterment of the association in Laois, providing a higher class of facilities and maintaining them to a proper standard at the stadium, something that every club in the county and beyond will benefit from.”
Matty Walsh Managing Director MW Hire Group said: “MW Hire Group are delighted to, not only continue but, expand our sponsorship deal with Laois GAA to include naming rights to O ‘Moore Park which is a ground associated with many famous days in the history of the GAA.
“It has been a great experience for MW Hire Group to be involved with Laois GAA for the past 10 years and a privilege to be able to positively contribute to the development of both codes in the county at all levels.
“We look forward to continued success for Laois GAA in “MW Hire O ‘Moore Park”and further afield.”
