    Go-Ahead Ireland (GAI) has announced an extension of its existing sponsorship of the Dublin GAA adult leagues and championships across the four codes of Football, Ladies Football, Hurling, and Camogie until at least 2026.

    Dublin GAA’s club adult league and championships consist of 88 clubs, the majority of which are part of the GAI network of services and communities, with thousands of players competing in over 50 competitions across four codes.

    Go-Ahead Ireland is Dublin’s best performing and fastest growing public transport bus operator. The organisation has seen substantial growth since the launch of their initial three-year partnership with Dublin GAA in 2021 and continues to be a top employer within the capital, with over 800 colleagues.

    Commenting on the partnership renewal, Dervla McKay, Managing Director of Go-Ahead Ireland said: “This is an important partnership for us at Go-Ahead Ireland, one that we have committed to since its beginning in 2021.

    “We see a lot of shared values with Dublin GAA, in terms of the ethos that underpins our business and the services we provide. Both organisations serve the communities of Dublin, placing a fundamental importance on accessibility and engagement.

    “In 2021 we carried over 9 million passengers, with the latest figures showing that figure has increased to close to 19 million. These figures are an indication of the growth of our services and the communities we serve.

    “The partnership renewal with Dublin GAA is a platform for further growth and our ambition to enhance our connections with the communities of those that we serve on a daily basis.”

    Dublin GAA Commercial and Marketing Director, Tomás Quinn added: “We are delighted to extend our partnership agreement with Go-Ahead Ireland.

    “Our club leagues and championships are integral for our players and members across the county and the support of Go-Ahead Ireland helps us facilitate these competitions across all four codes.

    “We look forward to continuing to build on the work done to date and to continue to promote and show matches, highlights, and clips free to air where possible.”
