IRISH regional airline CityJet has been announced as the new sponsors of London GAA’s senior championships.

The airline, which has its major hub at London City Airport, is the new title sponsor of both London senior football and senior hurling championships.

Cathal O’Connell, CityJet’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “London GAA plays a pivotal role in the lives of thousands of Irish people living in the greater London area – and increasingly through its schools’ programme is attracting players with no family connections to Ireland.

London GAA secretary Mark Gottsche described the news as a great start to an exciting season ahead.

“London GAA is delighted to have CityJet on board as the title sponsors of the London Senior Football and Hurling Championship for 2016,” he said.

“We are especially delighted to attract such an internationally recognised brand to work in partnership with us in the promotion of our games and competitions here in London.

“We have built an excellent relationship with CityJet over the past number of years through travel for our Inter County Teams for National League and Championship games in Ireland.

“As an organisation we are looking forward to working closely with CityJet over the coming year in what promises to be another exciting year in the Senior Football and Hurling Championship in London.”

London GAA is affiliated to Ireland’s national sporting organisation, which boasts hundreds of thousands of players and members, in Ireland but also across the globe.

Cityjet’s Mr O’Connell added: “We are delighted to sponsor competitions for an organisation that is at the centre of Irish life for so many in London and offers a home from home. 

“The GAA helps in linking Irish people together when abroad but also in integrating them with their neighbours and the wider community.”
