Our Group Marketing Manager Adrian Sherry and Patrick Haslett, Commercial Director Paralympics Ireland with Irish Paralympic athlete, Orla Barry were on hand to celebrate the naming of Moran & Bewley’s Hotel Group as ‘Official Hotel Partner’ for Paralympics Ireland, at Silver Springs Moran Hotel, Cork on Friday 6th of December.
Our original involvement with Paralympics Ireland goes back to 2011 and we were a proud partner of the 2012 Irish Paralympic Team which delivered an impressive haul of 16 medals in London 2012.
Moran & Bewley’s played a key role in the preparations of Irish Paralympic athletes in the lead up to the Games and also hosted a number of showpiece events. With Irish Paralympic athletes now aiming for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, this support will again prove vital.
Commenting on the renewal of the partnership, Adrian Sherry, our Group Marketing Manager, said:
“We were thrilled to be involved with the incredible Irish Paralympic success at London 2012 and are delighted to help Paralympics Ireland prepare for the challenge of Rio 2016. The performances of Irish Paralympic athletes like Orla Barry are hugely inspiring and we will be supporting them every step of the way.”
Patrick Haslett, Commercial Director for Paralympics Ireland commented:
“We were very grateful for the invaluable support of Moran & Bewleys Hotels and their staff in the lead up to London 2012. As Irish Paralympic athletes target the podium at Rio 2016, we look forward to another exciting partnership.”
Orla Barry, Irish Paralympic star (Paralympic/World Discus medalist & world record holder) added:
“I’m honoured to become an ambassador for Moran & Bewleys Hotels’ involvement with Irish Paralympic sport. I’m a Cork-based athlete, so it’s especially fitting to kick off the partnership again in the Silver Springs.”
