With the prestigious Junior A Football Championships up and running, the Duhallow Board have officially announced Castlecor Potatoes as new sponsors to the divisional championship.

Chairman Joe Kearns said the ever increasing financial demands within the GAA sees clubs, divisions and county boards rely heavily on sponsorship.

"This is a major boost for our division and we are delighted to welcome Castlecor Potatoes sponsors on board.

"Just as we are proud of our own GAA network, Castlecor Potatoes can be justifiably proud of their presence within and outside Duhallow", he said.

"Without the generosity of sponsors, it would be a far more difficult task to survive. Castlecor Potatoes is a business deeply rooted in the famous barony, strongly linked by Gaelic games and related connections in our clubs," said Joe.

From the Castlecor Potatoes JAFC, there are seven teams entered with two groups that will determine finalists. Reigning champions Boherbue put their title on the line and they can expect a stiff challenge.

"Castlecor are new sponsors and we know how proprietor Ned English is so passionate about the GAA and his involvement with Duhallow and club teams right throughout the county and Munster. We hope the new partnership will be a very productive and fruitful relationship," said the Duhallow Board Chairman.
