Go-Ahead Ireland (GAI) has announced an extension of its existing sponsorship of the Dublin GAA adult leagues and championships across the four codes of Football, Ladies Football, Hurling, and Camogie until at least 2026.

Sport is an integral part of the wellbeing of any community alongside young people, not just in Dublin but all over Ireland. Go-Ahead Ireland’s partnership with Dublin GAA is all about working hand in hand to support the sports pathway and bridge between club and community.

Commenting on the partnership renewal, Dervla McKay, Managing Director of Go-Ahead Ireland said: “This is an important partnership for us at Go-Ahead Ireland, one that we have committed to since its beginning in 2021.

We see a lot of shared values with Dublin GAA, in terms of the ethos that underpins our business and the services we provide. Both organisations serve the communities of Dublin, placing a fundamental importance on accessibility and engagement.

In 2021 we carried over 9 million passengers, with the latest figures showing that figure has increased to close to 19 million. These figures are an indication of the growth of our services and the communities we serve.

The partnership renewal with Dublin GAA is a platform for further growth and our ambition to enhance our connections with the communities of those that we serve on a daily basis.
