The event was hosted by legendary sports commentator Marty Morrissey and included speeches on the day from our CEO, Michael Cullen and Kilmacud Crokes Chairman, Kevin Foley.

“The relationship we are celebrating today is such a fitting one. Kilmacud Crokes GAA, Camogie and Ladies Football Club is a community volunteer organisation focused on health and wellbeing through sport. With our grass roots in the community of Kilmacud, Stillorgan, Mount Merrion, Dundrum and surrounding areas, Beacon Hospital was a truly perfect fit for us to partner up with. Passion lives here in our club. Passion for health and wellbeing is a key agenda we share with our friends, and now sponsors, Beacon Hospital.

We look forward to the support of Beacon Hospital as we continue our journey of inclusion in our club of members of all abilities. Our culture is one of facilitating and understanding people with particular or special needs. That same belief is in the DNA of our new sponsors, Beacon Hospital.”

“As a Senior footballer in the club, it is really exciting to see the announcement of this sponsorship deal between the club and Beacon Hospital. I think it’s a great partnership, given Beacon Hospital’s focus on overall health and wellbeing which is very much aligned with the goals and aspirations of our club.  Beacon Hospital were great supporters of our senior footballers in our recent All Ireland Club campaign, and I am delighted to see this now progress into a more longer-term formal partnership.”
