The Gleneagle Group have come onboard as main sponsors of the school’s various football, soccer and basketball teams.
“We are delighted to strengthen our ties with St. Brendan’s College. This school has a rich legacy of sporting success. The students’ sportsmanship, both on and off the pitch, makes them excellent ambassadors for their school and for Killarney, we wish them every success,” said Patrick O’Donoghue, Managing Director of The Gleneagle Group.
St. Brendan’s College is renowned for its commitment to sports and encourages participation in a wide variety of sporting disciplines. St. Brendan’s currently holds the All-Ireland Senior Colleges Football title and the Munster U15 title as well as the FAI All-Ireland First Year Soccer title. While the U15 football team will battle it out against Tralee CBS this Friday in their bid to retain the title of U15 Munster champions.
“The Gleneagle has held strong associations with sports in Kerry over the past sixty years, and many sporting organisations have benefitted from their generosity. Exciting plans are afoot at St. Brendan’s, to further develop our sports programme and our facilities. The Gleneagle’s sponsorship will go a long way towards offsetting the huge costs of running a top sports programme,” said Sean Coffey, Principal of St. Brendan’s College.
