The young players at Newry’s Camlough Rovers have an extra cause for celebration this week after the club took delivery of almost 100 new football kits thanks to the McDonald’s Club Twinning programme. The new kit, worth over £2,000, has been funded through a donation from local McDonald’s franchisee Stephen O’Hara. Stephen has supported Camlough Rovers for many years and cemented this support through the funding of almost 100 new football kits for the players at the club. The partnership between Camlough and the local franchisee is part of the McDonald’s Irish FA Community Programme, a partnership that celebrated 10 successful years earlier this year. Speaking after delivering the kits to the club, McDonald’s Newry franchisee Stephen O’Hara said, “Camlough Rovers makes a huge contribution to the local community here in Newry and I’m delighted to be able to continue our longstanding support of the club by sponsoring the new kits. “I wish all the players, coaches and staff at the club every success for the rest of the season and hope the new kits bring them lots of luck in their upcoming matches.” Camlough Rovers FC Chairman Jackie Mooney added, “Stephen and his team at McDonald’s in Newry have been a fantastic support for the club over the years and we’re delighted that he’s helped us again this season through a very generous donation of the new kits.” Camlough Rovers FC is sponsored by McDonald’s Newry as part of the McDonald’s Club Twinning programme, designed to create opportunities and build community relationships by funding football projects that allow clubs to grow.
