Cahir Camogie show their ‘cutting edge’ with Hard Metal

All-Ireland intermediate champions Cahir Camogie showed their ‘cutting edge' both on and off the field after taking delivery of new club jerseys last week.

The new tops are sponsored by Hard Metal Machine Tools, Ireland's leading supplier of precision cutting and grinding tools to the manufacturing industry.

They were presented to the team just days before Cahir showed a cutting edge of their own on the field as they started their first senior championship with a hard-fought 3-15 to 1-11 win over Moneygall.

It was the ideal start to a campaign which Cahir hope will take them all the way back to Croke Park next spring.

Cahir coach Carol Dunne said: “It's fantastic that Hard Metal have come in to sponsor the new jerseys. We needed a new set after we let the girls keep their jerseys last season because winning the All-Ireland was such an incredible achievement.”

Cahir Camogie chair Marie Casey highlighted the important role business backing for the club. She said: “This sort of support is a massive help for the club, it makes a huge difference and allows us do more for the girls. We've 120 girls playing aged from 6 to 25 and when a gets like Hard Metal gets behind them, it gives them a real boost - they are encouraged because they realise that they're good enough to sponsor. They really respond to it.”

Hard Metal General Manager, Thomas Kelly, praised the work that Cahir Camogie does for the youngsters in their community and said that the company was proud to be associated with the club.

“We're delighted to support Cahir Camogie,” Mr Kelly said. “They are a fantastic club who provide a great focus for their local community. I've no doubt that the team's achievements last year were an inspiration to youngsters throughout South Tipperary.”

“Giving back and supporting the communities where we operate is very important to Hard Metal. It is all about providing the opportunities for our young people and sport provides an excellent pathway to learn new skills, make lifelong friends, become more confident and maximise their own individual potential.

“We would encourage all companies who can to try and support their local sports groups and associations.”
