  • Sligo GAA officially unveiled its 2019 jersey and kit during a special launch event at AbbVie’s Manorhamilton Road facility in Sligo today.  The County Board recently told club delegates at its Annual County Convention that the company had agreed to extend its sponsorship of the county for a further three years.

    The biopharmaceutical company, which has two manufacturing plants near Sligo town, agreed an initial three year sponsorship deal with the county board in 2015. It saw the AbbVie logo appear on all Senior, U-20 and Junior football team jerseys, and this announcement will extend the partnership until the end of the 2021 season.

    AbbVie continues to be the only multinational pharmaceutical company in Ireland to sponsor an inter-county GAA team.

    Members of the Sligo senior squad, including Niall Murphy and Sean Carrabine, showcased the new strip at the company’s Manorhamilton Road facility. The striking white jersey continues to feature the AbbVie logo on the front and associated sponsor branding from IT Sligo on the back. It also sports black sleeves with red detailing, dark grey shadow hoops, a Sligo crest embossed on the lower back and the title of the WB Yeats play The Land of Heart’s Desire on the collar. It is the first time the county have worn white since the middle of the 2001 season.

    The jersey will make its first competitive appearance on Sunday 27th of January next when Sligo begin their Division 3 campaign against Carlow at Netwatch Cullen Park.

     

  • Sligo captured the Division 3B Allianz Hurling league title this afternoon after a 3-17 to 2-16 win over Leitrim at the Connacht Centre of Excellence.

  • Sligo GAA regret that it will not be possible for their senior hurlers to fulfill the Christy Ring Cup fixture against Derry tomorrow.

    A member of the Sligo Hurling panel returned a positive Covid-19 test on Wednesday October 21st.

    The player tested was part of the squad that took part in the Roinn 3B final win on Sunday October 18. As such a number of close contacts are now in isolation and the complete squad are now undertaking tests for the virus and are following HSE and GAA guidelines.

    Sligo GAA County Board officers have liaised with GAA officials in Croke Park since this issue arose. Both Derry and Leitrim have been informed of this case.

    Sligo say they hope to participate in the second round of the Christy Ring Cup on the weekend of 7th/ 8th November, when the players who are restricting their movements will hopefully be available. They are currently availing of the GAA’s rapid testing facility.

    We also wish to emphasise that the County Board, team management, players and backroom staff have followed HSE and GAA guidelines in relation to Covid-19 at all times.
