We’re proud to continue backing Wolfe Tones

Hard Metal is delighted to have renewed our sponsorship with Wolfe Tones na Sionna as the GAA club celebrates its jubilee year. Wolfe Tones are enjoying a momentous 50th anniversary, with the men’s hurling team competing in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship. Hard Metal General Manager Thomas Kelly joined the Shannon club’s Clare hurling stars Aaron Cunningham and Aron Shanagher recently announce the new two-year sponsorship and launch Wolfe Tones’ new away strip.

Mr Riordan said: “Hard Metal has been a terrific supporter of Wolfe Tones over the past two years – their involvement has made a really helped us grow GAA in the community. The backing of local companies like Hard Metal is the lifeblood of GAA clubs up and down the country, and Wolfe Tones couldn’t have a better partner as we celebrate our 50th anniversary.” Wolfe Tones new away shirts had a successful first outing recently as the hurlers defeated Broadford in a junior league match 2-9 to 2-8. Club captain Aaron Cunningham said they’re proving popular with the players and fans alike: “The lads are all delighted with the new shirts – they look great. A lot of the kids at the club are looking to get hold of them now as well, so we might be seeing them around the town over the summer.” Hard Metal General Manager Thomas Kelly said: “Like so many of the companies in the Shannon area, we have staff involved with Wolfe Tones. We’re all part of the same community and Hard Metal is delighted to play our part in supporting that community.”
