Munster CEO Garrett Fitzgerald is thrilled that Clayton Hotels will sponsor the Munster Schools Senior and Junior Cup for the next two years.

The deal, which runs until 2018, will also see Clayton Hotels become the Official Hotel Partner of Munster.

As a result Munster will use Clayton Hotels for their accommodation needs, while the benefits will also be felt by the fans of the province.

This year's Munster Schools Senior Cup final takes place in Irish Independent Park, and Fitzgerald is pleased for Munster to have links with such a well-known brand.

"We are delighted to welcome Clayton Hotels to our family of partners and sponsors. The Munster Schools Senior and Junior Cups are centrepieces in our rugby season and having Clayton Hotels as sponsor of these competitions between now and 2018 is a very positive addition," he said.

"Our squads at all levels look forward to staying with Clayton Hotels in the future."

There are 13 Clayton Hotels across Ireland and the UK. There is one in Cork, and one in the process of being built in Limerick, along with Dublin, Belfast, Galway and Wexford.

Head of sales and marketing for Dalata Hotel Group, Patrice Lennon said Clayton Hotels are also excited by the new venture.

"Through our sponsorship of the Schools Cups we look forward to witnessing the development of Munster's future stars and we also look forward to welcoming the teams and supporters to our hotels across Ireland," said Lennon.
