LK Shields is proud to support one of Connacht and Ireland’s leading rugby clubs, Galwegians RFC.
LK Shields Solicitors is delighted to announce our appointment as lead sponsor of Galwegians Rugby Football Club. This sponsorship further reflects our growing commitment to the region. Galwegians is one of Connacht and Ireland’s leading rugby clubs with an active community of over 700 players and members. It is a club with exciting plans for the future and, with an emphasis on supporting and developing young talent, it is an ideal partner for the firm.
LK Shields is guided by the principles of access, opportunity and inclusion and we see all three of these values mirrored in the Galwegians male and female teams at every level. Their vision for the future development of all players and the club is one which we share.
Commenting on the announcement, Michael Kavanagh, Chairman, LK Shields Solicitors said:
“Galwegians are a leading club in the west of Ireland. With a commitment to developing young talent and with an exciting vision for the future, I see real parallels between LK Shields and Galwegians. As we continue to grow our team in Galway I am excited to see us partnering with such an impressive club and we look forward to supporting them in realising their ambitious plans for growth and development.”
Padraig Moran, President of Galwegians Rugby Football Club, said:
"We are delighted to welcome LK Shields on board as the main sponsor of Galwegians Rugby Football Club. Like most sports clubs we are a voluntary organisation, and sponsorship is a vital source of funding to help us field over 20 rugby teams. LK Shields is a successful and ambitious organisation who are committed to Galway, having opened their office in Dockgate last year. This makes them ideal partners for Galwegians RFC, and I would sincerely like to thank them and especially their Chairman and Galway native Michael Kavanagh."
