This week's Club Notes come from Cashel and Shannon Rugby Clubs.
Patrick Keane, speaking in Keanes Jewellers Flagship Store on Oliver Plunkett Street Cork, welcomed Munster Players Tomas O’Leary, Lifeimi Mafi and Sam Tuitupou along with Helen Brosnan, Munster Rugby Vice Captain, squad member Donna Hughes and Amanda Greensmith, Munster Rugby Women’s Community Rugby Officer. He stated that “Keanes Jewellers are delighted to be sponsoring the Munster Rugby Women’s Team for the next two seasons and are also delighted to welcome such talented players in store. We have always had strong links with Munster Rugby and hope to build on this relationship for the future".
“In celebration of the fact that we have also been named ‘Official Jeweller to Munster Rugby’ we have put together a five piece limited edition sterling silver capsule collection for men and women with the Munster Rugby logo on each piece. The range includes two sets of cufflinks, a blazer pin, tie pin, ladies brooch and charm ranging from a very affordable €49 to €135. These pieces are available in all of our stores now and make the perfect gift for the Munster rugby fan or sport fanatic,” he said.
Commenting on the partnership Garrett Fitzgerald, Munster Rugby CEO added: “It is extremely positive to be building a new commercial relationship with an established, progressive, award winning, business based in Munster. I hope that this new partnership helps build the profile for the Keanes brand through the sponsorship of the Women’s Team, whilst at the same time provides a new range of jewellery for both Munster Rugby & Keanes.”
