Tipperary GAA announce the launch of a new Commercial Board

Tipperary GAA is delighted to announce details of its newly established Commercial Board that will support the ongoing fundraising efforts of the County Board. The board will be chaired by Declan Kelly, Chairman and CEO of Teneo, Tipperary’s Official Sponsor, and will be made up of longstanding supporters of Tipperary GAA.

One of the main tasks being undertaken by the Board is a fundraising effort to secure the funds needed to support the ongoing strategic development of the Tipperary senior hurling team under Liam Sheedy’s management.

Initially the Commercial Board will consist of the following:

  • Declan Kelly, Chairman and CEO of Teneo (Chairperson)
  • Brendan Murphy, Vice Chairman of Teneo Ireland
  • Louis Fitzgerald, Owner of the Louis Fitzgerald Group
  • Alan Quinlan, Sports Commentator & Former Professional Rugby Player
  • Declan O’Rourke, General Manager of AIG Ireland
  • John Tierney, Chairman of the Corporate Sub Committee of Tipperary Supporters Club
  • Mick O’Keeffe, CEO of Teneo Ireland
  • Niall Quinn, Businessman and former Professional Footballer
  • Michael Madden, Chairman of Teneo Capital Advisory
  • Simon Scroope, Head of AIB Corporate Banking

The first event being organised by the Commercial Board, in association with Tipperary GAA’s official sponsor Teneo, will be a celebration of Tipperary Hurling in the Mansion House, Dublin, on April 10th. The dinner will be a celebration of the 27 All Ireland Hurling Championships won by Tipperary throughout the years, with eight living captains being honoured on the night. There will also be several special guests in attendance on the night including Pat Shortt and Ireland rugby legend and 2009 Grand Slam winning Captain Brian O’Driscoll.

At the event there will be a panel discussion with the living All Ireland winning captains and an interview with Tipperary Hurling Manager Liam Sheedy, as well as some interaction with the other special guests and sporting greats in attendance that will be announced before the event.
