GRANT THORNTON FIRES UP 28TH COMÓRTAS PEILE PÁIDÍ Ó SÉ
Grant Thornton, Ireland’s fastest growing professional services firm, is supporting one of the longest running club GAA tournaments in Ireland – the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2017 – which this year takes place 17-19 February.
The leading advisors, located in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Galway, Kildare, Limerick and Longford, will sponsor the GRANT THORNTON BBQ & WELCOME PARTY for players and supporters which kicks off the weekend (7.30pm, Friday, 17th February) at Comórtas HQ in Páidí Ó Sé’s Pub in Ventry, Co. Kerry.
32 Adult men’s and ladies teams from 14 counties, England and even the United Arab Emirates will participate over the weekend in senior, intermediate and junior grade competitions.
Pádraig Óg. Ó Sé, Comórtas Chairman commented, “We are delighted to bring on board Grant Thornton who are already great supporters of sporting activities in Ireland. Their footprint stetches right into most regions in Ireland as does the Comórtas and we are delighted to strike up a partnership that we know can be mutually beneficial in reaching a wider audience with their services.”
The football festival has attracted over 13,000 club players since it began in 1989 and is a big boost for tourism in the area with over 1,800 bed nights created over three nights. This year, as well as nightly music and entertainment in Comórtas HQ at Páidí Ó Sé’s pub there will also be a special excerpt from a John B. Keane play hosted by the late playwright and author’s son Billy Keane on Sunday evening in the pub.
