Irish Independent and Media are delighted to announce their new commercial partnership with Community Games in association with the HSE as Official Press Partner with immediate effect.
Community Games is part of the fabric of Irish society with over 160,000 active participants taking part in over 500 areas all over Ireland. At the core of the organisation are over 10,000 volunteers who give up their time freely to promote the ideals of the organisation.
This is a key time for the partnership to commence as 2017 is the Jubilee celebration of the founding of Community Games. 2017 will see great celebrations and events take place all over the country and all through the year with great joint promotions in The Irish Independent.
Speaking on behalf of Community Games Gerard Davenport, President of Community Games, highlighted the importance of the partnership “Community Games is a huge organisation and it is important for us to increase our profile while at the same time, ensuring all our members are up to date with all of our activities. Having the largest media house as a partner will go a long way to achieve this while also assisting us to grow our participation and volunteer numbers to an even higher level.”
"The Irish Independent is delighted to be announced as official press partner to Community Games, in association with the HSE. Positive physical and mental health initiatives among young people are of the utmost importance and we are delighted to support the Community Games’ continued and growing success in this area. We are introducing some exciting projects to celebrate the achievements of participants in Community Games this year and look forward to the continued partnership for next year’s Jubilee celebrations."
