Speaking at the announcement, Justin Galvin, Managing Director, Finbarr Galvin Škoda said, “We are delighted to sponsor the local GAA club here in Bandon as we recognize the importance in supporting the local community and what better way to support it than aiding the local GAA club. The Škoda range offers excellent value for money and we look forward to developing our relationship with the GAA club.”

This is further progress for Bandon GAA club as the club has recently completed a development costing over €500,000 which includes a flood lit ball alley and a sand-based flood-lit second pitch, which can be used 52 weeks of the year.
