JLT Ireland has signed up for a second year as the headline sponsor for the 2018 National Gymnastics Awards evening on Saturday 17th November.

“We are very proud to be back to support the 2018 JLT Gymnastics Ireland National Awards,” said  Amanda Harton a Partner at JLT Ireland.

“The sport continues to grow in numbers year on year and there have been some amazing results such as with Rhys McClenaghan’s historic European championship win.”

“JLT Ireland is glad to be able to support an event that recognises the key achievements of the Gymnastics Ireland community from club to national level.”

McClenaghan’s Gold was a major highlight not only for Gymnastics but for the whole of Irish sport over the summer and was shown live on RTÉ Television despite being one of the busiest Sunday’s of the year with action from those Championships, the GAA Championship season and the Dublin Horse Show vying for attention.

Gymnastics Ireland also signed a new multi-year sponsorship deal with Nestle Cereals and was awarded as Sports Governing Body of the Year at the Federation Sports Industry Awards.

Membership has grown by ten per cent and is now over 30,000 making the sport one of the largest in the country in terms of registered participants.

“2018 has again been a huge year,” said Gymnastics Ireland CEO Ciaran Gallagher.

“This event has established itself as a real celebration of all things gymnastics and serves as a great social occasion for our members and community to get together outside of the gym or competition arena. It is great to have JLT Ireland back on board as sponsors once more.
