With the recent merge of Cork City’s Women’s FC now joined forces with the men’s team under the banner of Cork City Football Clubs, spirits were high which added to this fantastic day!
Along with the announcement of the merger, we were delighted to confirm our new enhanced partnership which see’s Clonakilty Food Co. (home of our Clonakilty Sausages and the famous Clonakilty Blackpudding) become the main sponsor of the Women’s team, as well as continuing our long association with CCFC maintaining our presence on the men’s jersey.
Proud to be sponsoring Cork City Football Club again, Colette Twomey, our Managing Director, said “We have had a great journey with Cork City over the last number of years. We were all delighted with the success enjoyed by both the men’s and women’s teams last year, and we are very pleased to be supporting both of them in 2018”.
“Community is very important to us here at Clonakilty Food Co., and we share many of the same values as FORAS and Cork City FC. We look forward to continuing to work with everyone at the club and hope for another successful year”.
