Connacht sponsorship manager Gavin Duffy says it is essential the club continue to grow their links with the west of Ireland as they expand into a major European brand.

This week it was announced that Good4U, a family-owned Sligo-based healthy snack company, will be the team's official snack supplier.

Good4U base their products on having a passion for food snacks that have proven benefits for health and well-being, and that links perfectly with the youthful growing province that is Connacht.

The west of Ireland link is another major asset for Connacht as they continue to build connections within the community, and the culture of one province and five counties gets more entrenched.

Good4U now employs 50 staff after they were set up back in 2004, and their produce products from Roasted Seeds, Super Seed Snacks, Fresh Sprouts to the newly launched Super Bites and Kids Super Bites range.

Duffy says he is pleased to have another local enterprise on board, and that Connacht will continue to grow in that area.

"We're delighted to be partnering with Good4U who have such a strong link to the west of Ireland with their headquarters in Sligo. Working together we look forward to developing rugby in the province and building upon the success we've enjoyed to date," he said.

And his views were echoed by the director of Good4U, Laura O'Sullivan. "Good4U are really excited to be teaming up with Connacht Rugby. Through the supply of a range of healthy snacks created by our dietician Shelly, we will be fuelling the current crop of champions on the field and growing champions of the future with our new Super Bites for kids."
