A NUMBER of local schools have benefited from Lidl’s new partnership with the Ladies’ Gaelic Football Association, with school teams winning kit bags containing jerseys and GAA equipment.
Each Lidl branch nationwide ran an in-store competition which saw local schools battle it out to win votes from customers.
The schools with the most votes won Lidl’s Ladies’ Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) post-primary schools store competition and were presented with a kit bag containing jerseys and GAA equipment – and locally, nine schools scored a kit bag.
Jennifer Gleeson, sponsorship manager with Lidl Ireland, said: “Since the launch of our partnership with the Ladies’ Gaelic Football Association in January, we have worked to engage with communities, clubs, schools and county teams across the country to show our dedication to providing serious support for the sport.
“We were delighted to be able to provide jerseys and equipment to 145 schools across Ireland, including Tallaght Community School, as part of the Lidl LGFA post-primary schools store competition, and we look forward to continuing our support of Ladies’ Gaelic football through various initiatives and programmes over the coming three years.”
Local schools that received a kit bags include, Tallaght Community School, St Colmcille’s, Knocklyon, St Paul’s Secondary School in Greenhills, Pobalscoil Iosolde, Palmerstown, St Mac Dara’s, Templeogue, St Mark’s Community School, Tallaght, Sancta Maria, Rathfarnham, Colaiste Cois Life in Lucan and Colaiste Bride in Clondalkin.
