Galway Camogie and Supermac’s have made a surprise announcement that their sponsorship of more than 20 years has come to an end.

County Board Chairman Brian Griffin said that they are extremely grateful to Pat and Una McDonagh for their support over such a long period, and that it’s hoped that the relationship was mutually beneficial.

“However, all these things come to an end and Galway Camogie hope to make an announcement shortly in relation to future plans.”

He added that the board wishes Pat and Una “every success”, and noted their ongoing commitment to women’s sport, with the recent announcement that will be sponsoring the Galway Women’s Football Club.

Pat McDonagh has long been associated with Galway GAA, having sponsored the hurlers since 1991, and expanding that the to include the football in 2013.

Supermac’s signed a five year deal in 2018 to continue their sponsorship of the hurlers and footballers up to 2022.

Pat McDonagh, founder of Supermac’s, said that he and Una have been delighted to be associated with the various camogie teams across two decades.

“We have seen some outstanding performances with the All Ireland Final wins of 2013, 2019 and 2021 being the highlights. We would like to thank all the players, managers, coaches and their families for their continued support over the years.”

“While there have been some tough days along the way, each and every team, from underage to senior, that put on a jersey deserves respect and credit for their commitment.”

“This current Galway Camogie team, led by Cathal Murray, has proved to be the most successful of all. Their dedication has brought this about and we wish them and their management team continued success over the coming seasons.”
