Locals launch All Ireland Sevens
Two Wexford retailers were on hand to help launch this year's Londis 7s All Ireland Senior Football Sevens tournament which takes place in Kilmacud Crokes on September 1.
Jim McGovern and Jimmy O'Brien, from O'Brien's Londis, Larkin's Cross, joined Mayo All Star Chris Barrett, former Dublin player Johnny Magee, and former Tyrone All Ireland winner Joe McMahon, as well as Londis Sales Director Conor Hayes, to launch the popular competition, which always runs on the day before the All Ireland Football final.
The Londis brand is in operation for over 60 years and, this year, has come on board as title sponsors of the prestigious competition. Their tagline 'Local Like You' is at the heart of their ethos and the new sponsorship emphasises their ongoing commitment to community engagement and local participation.
The competition has been won by some of the most successful clubs in Ireland.
Conor Hayes, Londis Sales Director said: 'We are very excited to be sponsoring the Londis 7s All Ireland Senior Football tournament in Kilmacud Crokes. Londis is in operation for over 60 years in Ireland and community engagement and local participation is at the heart of what we, as a brand, are about.
'As our strapline states, we pride ourselves on being 'Local like you'. Being associated with this unique competition, that brings teams together from all over Ireland, reaffirms our commitment to the local communities our independent retailers serve.'
