where e'er we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory”

Message from Nicky Comyn – President of the Irish Rugby Football Union

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

On my own behalf and on behalf of the IRFU, I extend my best wishes to Garryowen FC  for the 2019-20 season and hope it is a successful one.  

The start of this season heralds the staging of the Rugby World Cup in Japan and I know you join with me in wishing every success to coach, Joe Schmidt, and his management team, together with the Ireland playing squad.  

This Rugby World Cup year creates a very busy season, taking account of Ireland’s women 15s team; the under 20s; men’s and women’s sectors; the fortunes of our provincial clubs in the Guinness Pro14 and Heineken Champions Cup and also the myriad club, women’s, third level and schools competitions through the grass roots landscapes.

While by its nature the professional game takes precedence on the International stage, the welfare of the domestic amateur game is of paramount importance to me and to the IRFU. 

Having been chairman of the AIL and Third Level, I am acutely aware of the position of clubs and I take this opportunity to acknowledge the committed and critical role being played by our huge number of volunteers, who make it all happen.  

I greatly welcome the IRFU’s signing of a five year partnership with Energia, which sees the electricity and gas supply company become the official energy partner to Irish rugby and also title sponsor of both the men’s and women’s All Ireland League competitions.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the AIL and the support being demonstrated by Energia is timely. It will hopefully give a lift to all clubs in the AIL, both men and women.

I appreciate the struggles of some clubs at all levels and hope this season 2019-20 will be a special one.  I wish your club, its members, volunteers, players and supporters every success and enjoyment for the rugby year.

Nicky Comyn – President IRFU.

A Message from AIL League sponsor Energia

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

We at Energia are extremely proud to have further strengthened our commitment to Irish rugby by becoming the Official Energy Partner to the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) and title sponsor of the Energia All-Ireland Leagues (AIL). Through our five-year partnership, we are committed to supporting rugby at all levels through the teams, clubs and competitions the breadth of the nation.

Energia understands the value of the AIL and the importance of fostering and nurturing Irish rugby clubs so that collectively we can continue to build world-class international teams. We look forward to working closely with the IRFU over the coming years to help facilitate the future development of rugby in communities up and down the country through our new campaign #PositiveEnergy.

Through the #PositiveEnergy campaign, we will be offering tools and supports to help Irish rugby clubs reach their sustainability goals. For so many players and fans, the journey and passion begins at their local club and Energia wants to ensure the future of these clubs. If we can help them to become sustainable, the clubs can re-invest in grassroots, ultimately developing the next generation of players, coaches and volunteers.  

This is an exciting time for Energia.  We are passionate about investing positive energy in rugby, from grassroots level with the Energia All-Ireland Leagues, to provincial level as the Official Energy Partner of Leinster Rugby and our stadium at Energia Park, all the way to the highest level of the Irish Men’s and Women’s teams.

On behalf of Energia, I would like to wish all club and international teams the very best of luck for the upcoming season.

Gary Ryan
