We are proud to play our part and we are looking forward to working closely with Kerry FC in their efforts to reach the top ‘flight’ of the League of Ireland.”
Kerry FC CEO, Brian Ainscough, said, “We welcome Kerry Airport Ireland as our front-of-jersey sponsor for the SSE Airtricity First Division team on a three-year deal. Kerry Airport Ireland is a wonderful resource for everyone in the county and to be associated with a company like Kerry Airport is an honour for a new club such as ours.
