Kepak is marking the historic success of the All-Ireland winning Meath Senior Ladies football team with an initiative that links the squad and primary schools across Meath.
Every primary school attended by a player from the All-Ireland winning squad will be presented with a framed jersey and squad picture of the player involved.
Players from the double All-Ireland winning team will be visiting over 25 primary schools in the coming weeks and over 10,000 primary school students will get the chance to meet members of this history-making Meath team.
The initiative launched in Dunboyne Primary School and Gaelscoil Thulach an nÓg, was attended by Meath players, Emma Duggan, Shauna Ennis and Vikki Wall along with Kepak’s Mick O’Dowd and Emma Flynn.
Kepak’s partnership with Meath LGFA underscores the Clonee headquartered food company’s continued commitment to promoting women in sport. Kepak also works with Meath LGFA to provide essential funding to drive the continued growth and development of teams at every level throughout the county.
Commenting on Kepak’s continued support of Meath LGFA and the promotion of women in sport, Mick O’Dowd, Kepak Agri-Business Development Manager said: “Kepak is delighted to lead this initiative to mark the All- Ireland success of the Meath Ladies.
At Kepak, we recognise the importance of connecting with and inspiring the younger generation who hope to follow in the footsteps of their heroes.
The success of Meath LGFA in recent years is testament to the hard work put in by the entire panel and county board.
“What is also evident is the positive impact that their success has had on promoting sport in the county. Kepak’s sponsorship of Meath LGFA is aligned with our Diversity Equality and Inclusion focus and we will continue to support the promotion of female inclusion in sport into the future”.
