Sports Direct became the principal partner of Cork GAA, in a partnership that sees the support of not just the men’s senior football and hurling teams, but also the Minor and Under 20 teams in both codes.

Customers will receive €10 back in the form of a voucher with every Cork GAA home jersey purchased in store.
