Chadwicks and Leinster GAA have today announced details of a partnership that will see Ireland’s leading supplier of building materials, bathrooms, heating products & home and garden products become the new sponsor of the Leinster GAA Chadwicks Club Hurling League (formerly the Leinster GAA Adult Club Hurling League).  It’s Chadwicks first step into sponsorship of our national games.

Chadwicks Club Hurling League

The Chadwicks Club Hurling League is a cross county competition which has seen 71 teams from right across the province compete at Junior, Intermediate and Senior level in four divisions.  This year’s Division 1 final takes this Sunday, June 9th as a curtain raiser to the Leinster Senior Championship clash of Kilkenny and Galway. It sees two Kilkenny clubs, Mullinavat and St Martins, go head to head at Nowlan Park at 11.45am.

Chadwicks Brand Ambassadors

Tullaroan’s Tommy Walsh, who has played in the competition, was on hand for today’s launch together with fellow Chadwicks Brand Ambassadors Eamonn Dillon (Dublin) and Collette Dormer (Kilkenny).  The ambassadors will promote the Chadwicks Club Hurling League and will also support a new Chadwicks competition that will be rolled out to support clubs within the province.

Chadwicks Kit-Out Competition

The Chadwicks Kit-Out competition will see clubs in Leinster win over €20,000 of Chadwicks product to improve and enhance their changing room facilities.  Winners from each county will win €1,000 worth of product before going on to compete for the overall prize of €10,000 worth of product.
