ETS is new sponsor of Irish Derby
THE Irish Derby has a new sponsor in Enterprise Targeted Solutions (ETS) and, apparently, the man who set the sponsorship process in motion was none other than Mike McKenna, of Lixna.
He of College Causeway fame. The new sponsorship deal is worth €750,000 over three years and this year's Derby, which starts on August 7 and climaxes on September 14, will be worth €125,000 to the winner.
Enterprise Targeted Solutions is a UK-based independent finance company which provides funding for small and medium enterprises and is moving into the Irish market next month.
