I'd love to know who gets the best sponsorship deal of all the counties...probably the jackeens because of jersey sale revenue. Kerry group are a vital to us anyway, I know that. Couldn't function without them.
Around the time of the Vodafone deal I think it was reported there are more Dublin jerseys sold in the capital than Man U, Arsenal, Liverpool combined.

Vodafones deal with Dublin is the most lucrative afaik.
it's going to be a big ask to find a sponsor to match o2's input over the last decade and a half. on the flip side, a new sponsor might breathe some fresh life into the brand side odds things.

Apple was the first company that came into my head as a replacement also..huge company with a Euro HQ in Cork, have been here for years and have a good connection with the place. Would EMC be big enough for it?

The money in Sports sponsorship is crazy...I've seen some paperwork on corporate events and VIP appearances and the sums involved are mind boggling.
The Celtic Tiger might be gone, but there will be several suitors grovelling to Frankeen and co for the right to have their brand on the blood and bandage, guaranteed.

hopefully we'll get nicer jerseys too! never liked the current ones with the dark red tick on the chest. seriously its a big loss and will be hard to replace. wouldn't be surprised to see 2 sponsors to cover the cost of 2 teams in the top 4 of each code

According to Irish Times of last week:

"Beyond the top tier of counties - those populous and successful enough to earn six-figure (and in Dublin' s case, closer to seven-figure) sums a year - the bulk of the deals fall in the region of E70,000 to E100,000 per annum but for some it can dip to E50,000 and less."

Apple don't do advertising/sponsorship.. Well very little of it anyway.
Last year Oprah Winfrey wanted to use the Ipad as part of a Xmas special.
Bearing in mind publicity from the most successful TV show in TV history globally
is meant to be worth Millions and then some..
Apple said Thanks But NO THANKS..
'We don't need the publicity..' was the response.
They can't make their shit fast enough to satisfy demand.

A sponsor is important.
O2 have been good to GAA in Cork and these things usually run their course.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another telecomms company come in and replace them.
O2 are involved with Irish rugby as well.

I think we did well out of em and a change might not be a bad thing

There was a rumour that Kildare were trying to tap up Kerry Group because of the Naas thing.
