Leading timber processing firm, Glennon Brothers, who are celebrating 100 years in business, is delighted to announce its three year sponsorship of the newly launched Edinburgh-based Gaelic football school league.

With facilities in Fermoy, Longford, Arklow, Co Wicklow and Troon and Humbie, near Edinburgh in Scotland, the Glennon Brothers group employs over 360 people directly and another 170 people indirectly in the areas of harvesting and haulage.

Glennon Brothers joint managing directors, Mike and Pat Glennon, accompanied by David Rodger, who heads up Glennon Brothers in Scotland, attended the launch event of the league.

The youth element of Dunedin Connollys football club was established in 2012 and Glennon Brothers will provide financial backing to fund new kits and equipment to support the newly named ‘Glennon Brothers School League’, giving something back to the Scottish community in which over half of its employees are based.

Mike Glennon, joint managing director at Glennon Brothers, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the Edinburgh school league for Gaelic football. We all know that involvement in sport is enormously positive for young people. Without the time, commitment, and patience of countless volunteers, and the team at Dunedin Og, many young people would miss out on the wonderful opportunities that sport can provide.”

While Pat Glennon, joint managing director at Glennon Brothers, added: “This sponsorship is a key part of our celebration of 100 years in business in 2013 and clearly marks the significance of Scotland to Glennon Brothers today. We wish the Edinburgh school league every success.”
