University of Galway has announced a new sponsorship deal for the Camogie Club with Ireland’s largest indigenous MedTech company – Aerogen.

The announcement was made by University of Galway President Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh and John Power, founder and chief executive of Aerogen at a special get-together with players at the Quadrangle.

University of Galway Camogie Club will take to the field in the Purcell and Uí Mhaolagáin Cup competitions in the coming year. The first team competes in the Purcell Cup and the second team competes in the Uí Mhaolagáin Cup.

The Aerogen sponsorship, announced this week, will run for two years.

Speaking at the launch, President of University of Galway Professor Ó hÓgartaigh, said that University of Galway is thrilled to see Aerogen coming on board to support and sponsor the camogie team.

“It is a great symbol of intent. Building on the strength of camogie in Galway, our Camogie Club is an important and vibrant club in our university and contributes to participation by our students in sport, so important for student wellbeing,” he said.

“I am sure everyone in the University community will support our wishes for the camogie teams to pursue excellence in the University colours. We look forward to our camogie team capturing new glories in their cup campaigns this year, and on into the future.”
