Local businesses support Antrim Camogs

The Antrim Camogie Board chairman Vincent Boyle this weekend accepted two sponsorship cheques towards the provision of gear for the senior camogie team ahead of next Saturday’s liberty Insurance All-Ireland Intermediate camogie final.

The Glenshesk Bar in Ballycastle and McAtamneys Butchers had come on board before the semi-final win over Laois and Vincent thanked them very much for their support.

“2020 has been a very difficult year for everyone and particularly for those in business. McAtamneys are a very popular business in the north Antrim – east Derry area and they have had to adapt to all the changes that COVID 19 has thrown at them.

“The Glenshesk Bar, like all businesses involved in the hospitality sector, has suffered more than most this year and has not been able to open its door for a good part of 2020.

“This means that it is all the more commendable that Ciarán McIlroy was quick to come on board as we progressed through the championship.

“We sincerely thank both sponsors for their support and we ask that our clubs and their friends support both these local businesses.”
