Centra Rochestown Sponsors Roco GAA 2015 2016


Centra Sponsorship for hurling and football for St Francis College, Rochestown including Harty and Corn Uí Mhuirí teams


St Francis College, Rochestown, and Murphy’s Centra, Rochestown are delighted to announce a new sponsorship deal to support the school as it progresses to compete at the highest levels in Cork and Munster competitions on the GAA front. The college has a long and proud tradition in Gaelic games and as the school has expanded in recent years it has become ever more successful on the sporting field. We had the honour of competing in both the Corn Uí Mhuirí (Munster A Football) and the Harty Cup (Munster A Hurling) finals last year, but were unfortunate to lose both in tight games. Throughout the school in recent years we have been successful in both hurling and football winning competitions in Cork and Munster at all age groups.

To help facilitate these campaigns St. Francis College have joined forces with local business, Murphy’s Centra on the Rochestown Road, who have kindly agreed to sponsor the senior teams for the Harty Cup and the Corn Uí Mhuirí team. Eamonn Hennessy, a teacher from the school commented that, “We felt we needed to do something to up our game and put a programme in place that would assist us in competing at the highest levels in Cork and Munster competitions. We have been very fortunate to have Terry Murphy from our local Centra on board as a football sponsor for the last couple of years and we have found him to be completely supportive of what we wanted to do. Now they we are progressing  in hurling Terry has extended his sponsorship to both hurling and football and we are very grateful to Terry and Centra Rochestown, for their generous sponsorship in these difficult times and are fully confident that it will help us to compete in the years ahead. There is a lot of talent coming through the school at the moment in both hurling and football and we hope to build on our success in the future.”

Diarmuid Ó Mathúna, principal of St. Francis College commented that, “ The Board of Management are grateful for the sponsorship offered by Terry Murphy’s  Centra and hopes that the growth of St. Francis College will be mirrored in the expansion of Murphy’s Centra, Rochestown.”
